The radiofrequency (RF) safety of active implantable medical devices (AIMDs) during an magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is discussed in this article. The problem arises from the RF interaction of an AIMD with the MRI scanner is presented. The researchers simulated and modeled to understand the problem. They also developed techniques to resolve the RF safety problem by altering the design of AIMDs. Furthermore, implant friendly imaging solutions are developed. Validated the findings novel in vivo techniques. Clinical investigations are carried out to understand the extent of the problem. In this article, an incomplete summary of the investigations in this field is given.
