Technical Session: Powerful Connections with AIM and MRI

0.05 ASHA/AAA CEUs (Advanced, )

At Advanced Bionics, we believe that MRI procedures should be hassle free for you and your patients. Learn about the innovative and award winning HiRes Ultra 3D implant from AB that allows adult and pediatric recipients to safely undergo high-resolution 3T imaging with no need for magnet removal or head bandaging and with no restriction on head position. Advanced Bionics continues to push the limits of technology to provide the most complete, natural, and reliable hearing solutions for your patients. For this reason, we have launched the new AIM clinical tool to assist in providing the best possible hearing outcomes for your patients. Learn about how AIM enables real-time measurement of ECochG signals through the implant during surgery and in clinical follow-up. This system allows for a simple and objective prediction of acoustic hearing which is easy-to-use and can be seamlessly integrated into your practice.
