August 12, 2008 – MEDRAD Inc. announced yesterday that the wireless version of its Continuum MR Infusion System has received FDA 510(k) clearance.
The new Continuum Wireless MR Infusion System enables the clinician to control a patient’s medication infusion during a MR procedure from both inside and outside the scan room. When changes are needed, including flow rate, bolus, or to start or stop the infusion altogether, clinicians can control these parameters without interrupting the MRI scan with a new wireless remote display featuring a color touchscreen. This option is designed to increase workflow efficiencies and throughput while enhancing clinician confidence by enabling easy selection from up to nine IV stands, minimizing scan interruptions due to infusion changes and displaying all infusion parameters.
Continuum Wireless joins the Veris MR Monitor as the second product to utilize MEDRAD’s Certo MR Wireless Network.
