FDA approves MRI-safe defibrillators

 The Minneapolis Star Tribune (2/8, Carlson) reports that the Food and Drug Administration has approved Medtronic’s Amplia MRI Quad CRT-D SureScan and Compia MRI Quad CRT-D SureScan devices. The devices are “resynchronization defibrillators that are safe to use with magnetic resonance imaging” because they use “MRI-safe lead wires.”
