abstract

  • Although the controller of a standard SCD is labeled as "MR-unsafe", the SCD can be used in interventional MR settings by placing the device outside the MR scanner room. Using serial tubing extensions did not cause device failure. The described method can be used to provide perioperative mechanical VTE prophylaxis for high risk patients undergoing MR-guided procedures.
