MRI-Safe Pacemakers - Version 1.0

Mary Knudson, a health journalist and author of the Heart Sense blog, does a great job covering the story behind the story on the newly approved MRI-safe pacemakers in a guest blog post at the Scientific American. She discusses the challenges ahead in regard to the widespread clinical adoption of MRI-safe pacemakers, the issues with Medicare coverage of MRI's of patients with these devices, the logistics involved in their use, and includes commentary from a number of physicians, including a tidbit from yours truly.
