Easier access to MRI scans
The new Cochlear Nucleus Profile Plus Series Implant is designed for 1.5 Tesla and high-resolution 3.0 Tesla MRI scans without removing the magnet in your device.2
This means no additional surgery, no need to wear a bandage in the MRI machine and, most importantly, no unnecessary time without sound.
Cochlear first introduced access to MRI scans with a removable magnet in 1997, knowing that the MRI industry would continue to advance. The Profile Plus Series Implant is built on the industry-leading design of the Profile Series receiver stimulator. At only 3.9mm, Profile Plus provides a thin design along with a flexible coil to fit the natural shape of the head resulting in a better cosmetic outcome.3
