Co-operation between physicians and scientists from university hospitals, university research institutes and our laboratory has led to the development of a suture that can be visualised on MRI and incorporated into implants.
These MRT-visible implants offer many advantages:
- The position of the implant can be seen
- Better planning of subsequent or revision surgery (oncological or diagnostic) is possible
- Distance of the implant from bone, nerves, vessels and other structures can be demonstrated
- Help in managing complications
