The radiofrequency (RF) induced heating for patients with implants during exposure to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a complex function of multiple factors, e.g., implant characteristic, patient anatomy, imaging position, RF coil, etc. A comprehensive safety assessment cannot be derived from the limited scenarios possible in clinical trials. We have established an in silico safety assessment trial that comprises a comprehensive data library with a data analytics toolset to perform a complete evaluation in a timely and traceable manner. We demonstrate the workflow for RF-induced heating evaluation for patients with medical implants.
