As the number of implantable medical devices continues to proliferate rapidly, it will be essential for us to immediately recognize their radiographic features. Matthew Cravens, MD leads this important project, covering individual devices as part of a monthly series.
This month Dr. Cravens has joined forces with Dr. Brian Powell, Lora Raines PA and Kristin Stemmler PA from the Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute to build our inaugural Implantable Devices presentation. These self-guided educational slides were first published on EMGuideWire.com and peer reviewed by Professor Michael Gibbs
