@quark My Nevro HF10 is also MRI compatible but that's not as simple as it sounds. First I must have my 16 electrodes tested for electrical resistance. That requires a short test with the Nevro rep (when she's in town). Then she certifies that I'm OK for an MRI. But, neither the local hospital system nor local imaging centers will give me an MRI if I have an SCS, so I have to travel 1 hr. north to one that will, in Savannah. There I present my certificate and turn off my SCS before entering the room with the MRI. After that, it's business as usual. It's not the product that's the problem but the knowledge of SCSs by the people running the centers.
