About IRADIMED CORPORATION
IRADIMED CORPORATION is the only known provider of non-magnetic intravenous (“IV”) infusion pump systems that are specifically designed to be safe for use during magnetic resonance imaging (“MRI”) procedures. We were the first to develop an infusion delivery system that neutralizes the dangers and problems present during MRI procedures. Standard infusion pumps contain magnetic and electronic components which can create radio frequency (“RF”) interference and are dangerous to operate in the presence of the powerful magnet that drives an MRI system. Our MRidium MRI compatible IV infusion pump system has been designed with a patented non-magnetic ultrasonic motor, uniquely-designed non-ferrous parts 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 that enables accurate, safe and dependable fluid delivery 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.
