MRI compatible?

FDA drafts new "MRI safety guidance" for medical devices. Guidance would replace the one from 2014. FDA will accept comments on the guidance until Oct. 1.

Some numbers:

Almost 70% of pacemakers implanted in 2018 were MRI-compatible, up from just 12% in 2016. More than 48% of cardiac defibrillators were compatible with the imaging equipment in 2018, compared to only 2% in 2016.
