Numerical simulation was performed to evaluate tissue damage due to magnetically induced (MI) force in 3T Magnetic Resonance (MR) environment for multi-configuration passive medical devices. Static magnetic and mechanical simulations were employed to determine the impact of MI force on the tissue surrounding the implant. The simulation results were used to select the worst-case for passive medical devices and for quantitative assessment of the tissue damage.
