About IRADIMED CORPORATION
IRADIMED CORPORATION is the only known provider of non-magnetic intravenous (“IV”) infusion pump systems that are designed to be safe for use during magnetic resonance imaging (“MRI”) procedures. Other electromechanical medical devices and pumps contain magnetic and electronic parts that are potentially dangerous to operate in the presence of the powerful magnet that drives an MRI. Our MRidium 3860+ MRI compatible IV infusion pump system has been designed with non-ferrous parts, ceramic ultrasonic motors, non-magnetic mobile stands and other special features in order to safely and predictably deliver anesthesia and other IV fluids during various MRI procedures. Our pump solution provides a seamless approach to providing IV fluids before, during and after an MRI scan, which is important to critically-ill patients who cannot be removed from their vital medications, and children and infants who must generally be sedated in order to remain immobile during an MRI scan.
