The purpose of this study is to evaluate and establish the safety of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with implanted cardiac devices through a prospective registry. At the Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart and Vascular Center (HMDHVC), we routinely encounter patients with cardiac devices requiring MRI imaging services for diagnostic purposes. This makes us particularly well suited to conduct this research study. In addition, the recent experience we have gained from being a part of the multicenter MagnaSafe study which is evaluating the safety of non-thoracic MRIs in patients with cardiac devices, makes us even more suitable to successfully conduct the proposed study.
