Abbott conducted extensive testing using industry-standard methods to demonstrate the safety of the Ellipse ICD system with Durata/Optisure /Tendril MRI leads for conditional Magnetic Resonance Imaging. This included but was not limited to comprehensive computer modeling across a broad range of clinical scenarios. The performance of the Ellipse ICD and Durata/Optisure leads was also evaluated in an Investigational Device Study (IDE). Ellipse ICD is conditionally safe for use in the MRI environment when used with Durata/Optisure/ Tendril MRI leads, and according to the instructions in the Abbott MRI Ready Systems Manual.
