Pacing your Heart inside MRI Machine using REVO to be costly

In the past decade, the use of MRI scanners has skyrocketed. Because the machines are able to provide relatively detailed images of soft tissues, they are extremely valuable in diagnosing cancers, heart problems and even back pain. These machines use a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce pictures of internal body structures.

But MRIs have been off limits to patients with implanted heart pacemakers. That’s because the MRI’s magnetic field could wreak havoc on a pacemaker’s electronic circuitry. Or worse, some of the pacemaker’s metal components could heat up and literally cook parts of the heart.

Just now out in the press is the news that

CEA-Leti and five partners are combining their expertise to develop a self-powered cardiac pacemaker eight times smaller than current models.

The Heart-Beat Scavenger (HBS) Consortium, which also includes the Sorin Group, TIMA, Cedrat Technologies, Tronics and EASII IC, is targeting an energy self-sufficient device that harvests mechanical energy from the movements of the heart, eliminating the need for batteries and post-implant surgeries to replace them.

A longer-term goal of the project is to reduce healthcare expenditures. Heart failure represents one of the biggest public-health costs today in Europe and the United States.
