This abstract presents magnetically induced torque measurements (per ASTM F2213) of materials commonly used in implantable leads. Implantable leads which are constructed solely from tested materials which pass the magnetically induced torque testing acceptance criteria of gravity torque, may not require magnetically induced torque testing per ASTM F2213 for MR conditionality with 3 T MR scanners.
