MRI: Cochlear™ Osia® System
Discover how Cochlear™ Osia® implants are conditional with an MRI scan and see what you should do before you have such a test.
Cochlear Osia Implants: designed for MRI at 1.5 T and 3.0 T
Our Osia implants are what we call ‘MRI conditional’. This means medical professionals can do an MRI scan on someone with an Osia implant only under very specific conditions.
People with an Osia system can be scanned by an MRI machine at 1.5 T or 3 T. For MRI scans at 3T, the internal magnet needs to be temporarily removed by a small medical procedure*.
Anyone with an Osia implant must remove all external components of their Osia system (e.g. the sound processor) before they enter a room where there is an MRI scanner.
Please talk to your clinician about precautions before you have an MRI scan.
