Radio-Frequency (RF) induced thermal injury is a common adverse event reported to US Food and Drug Administration. RF-induced heating risk depends on the interaction of implantable medical devices with electric field distribution in the MRI systems. A study showed that RF-induced heating of a neuromodulation device was much lower in the planar system compared to the cylindrical system. In this study, the hip and knee implants were studied in an anatomical human model at a 1.2T planar system and a 1.5T cylindrical system.
