Abstract: In this talk, the methodologies to determine worst-case heating for MRI conditional implantable and external fixation devices are discussed. The discussion includes factors related to the worst-case heating for 1) external fixation devices, 2) multi-component orthopedic devices, and 3) pacemaker or ICD leads. Modeling and experimental methods will be presented for efficient evaluation of MRI induced heating for these devices.
