BCIG would like to form a Special Interest Group (SIG) on the topic of MRI scanning in auditory implants.

We are fortunate that many auditory implants now allow MRI scanning. It is likely that all of us will be referred for an MRI scan at some or several points in our lifetime.

There are considerations for people with auditory implants – for example clear instructions and liaison with radiology, magnet removal, bandaging and splints, discomfort, feedback to the manufacturers etc.

BCIG anticipates a few (probably online) meetings per year plus email correspondence.

Please get in touch by emailing info@bcig.org.uk if you would like to get involved.
