Cochlear Baha Implants: designed for MRI at 1.5 T and 3.0 T

For the Baha Connect system, as long as the sound processor is removed, individuals can be scanned by an MRI machine at 1.5 T or 3 T.

For the Baha Attract system, as there is an implanted magnet, the system is conditionally approved at 1.5 Tesla. For any additional strength MRI, up to 3.0T, the magnet can be temporarily removed by a medical procedure.

The sound processor must be removed for all MRI scans.

Prior to receiving an MRI scan, recipients need to consult with their clinician about proper precautions.

Committed to helping recipients

MRI compatibility of the implant is only one of many considerations when choosing an implant system from Cochlear.

Combined with our exceptional reliability record, everything about our implant design supports our commitment to our recipients.
