The aim of this study is to present a prototype of the implantable temperature sensor which will be used in animal studies to emulate the situation of a patient with an Active Implantable Medical Device inside the MRI and investigate possible tissue damage due to the RF induced tissue heating. The prototype records temperature information during MRI scan and transmits the desired data wirelessly, while implant is still inside of the body, to the remote without any surgery operation.
