The Pressio® MRI Support is designed to position Pressio® Catheters in an optimum position for an MRI examination.
It has been demonstrated that coiling the sensor wire in this way drastically reduces the “antenna effect” and consequently the heating of the tip(1). The “antenna effect” of the sensor wire is caused by the resonant radiofrequency (RF) and can lead to the heating of the catheter tip up to 64°C 1 if positioned in a straight line during an MRI examination.
