Design excellence in the implant magnet

The next generation magnet in the Neuro Zti 3T✓ implant is designed to be able to withstand the strong magnetic field of the MRI scanner. 
It is made of a unique composite of rare-earth metals that are also widely used in the aerospace industry. This innovative material, together with a specialised patented manufacturing process, has resulted in an implant magnet that is highly stable during MRI scans.

Stable, secure and safe

During the MRI scan, the Neuro Zti implant and magnet remain securely anchored to the bone thanks to the unique way they are attached. Even if the patient has multiple MRI scans, the implant and magnet will stay securely in place. 

  • Unique screw fixation system 
  • Smart snap-fit anchoring design

Safe for scans of up 60 minutes

With the Neuro Zti 3T✓, patients can safely undergo MRI scans lasting up to 60 minutes. This gives the radiologist plenty of time to run the optimal scan sequence.

Magnet removal is easy, if needed

If the patient needs a scan where the implant magnet can interfere with the image, for example during a head scan, it is quick and easy to remove the magnet. The process can be done under local anaesthetic with only a small incision required. 

Magnet removal does not damage the body of the implant and the procedure can be repeated as often as necessary if additional scans are required.
