Yes, the microtransponder (Qid™) is MRI safe. The device is MRI conditional meaning that it has demonstrated to pose no known hazards in a specified MRI environment with specified conditions of use.
This microtransponder may create an imaging void during a breast implant MRI (known as an artifact effect) that can block visualization of a small area of minor breast tissue near the Qid™. In selected cases, alternative imaging techniques such as ultrasounds, tomosynthesis, digital compression mammogrammy, subtraction contrast mammography and scintimammography can be used to better visualize the region affected by the implant Qid™.
The Motiva Implants that give a round aesthetic appearance are the Motiva Implants® Round with ProgressiveGel PLUS, which provides the highest projection and a complete filling of the upper pole.
It is however important to mention that the desired results for each patient should be evaluated individually by the surgeon.
Round implants provide a higher top and a more full-bodied appearance. They are the most common implants and are used in almost 80 percent of all breast augmentation surgeries.
Anatomical implants are often called tear-drop-shaped because they are designed to simulate the shape of a natural breast. While the result with an anatomical implant is natural looking, the predeﬁned shape means the implant lacks natural movement and doesn’t shift with the body’s movements. For example, when a patient with anatomical implants moves from lying down to a standing position there is a noticeable lack of breast movement. This is because the implant retains the same shape wether the patient is prone, supine or upright.
Motiva’s Ergonomix® implants avoids this drawback by using a unique gel, which is very soft, allowing the implant to follow a women’s natural movement, holding a round shape when lying down and assuming a teardrop shape when standing. This gives a very natural appearance, both in look and feel.
The Q Inside Safety Technology is the world’s first FDA approved transponder for use in humans cleared in 2004 and the only one with CE-Mark when used in a breast implant. The microtransponder is a device which is placed in the breast implant filler material. Motiva Implants® with Qid™ contains a transponder that provides electronic serial number data through an external reader for traceability and quality assurance purposes.
This microtransponder has been separately reviewed and cleared for marketing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use as an implantable microchip that is inserted into the subcutaneous tissue of a patient to provide the patient an electronic serial number that may be used to access a database containing the patient’s identity and health information.
