PACES CIED and MRI study

Dear Colleagues

Lindsey Gakenheimer at the University of Utah is coordinating a multicenter research study with Susan Etheridge and Tom Pilcher evaluating the rate of adverse events in pediatric and adult congenital heart disease patients with CIEDs undergoing an MRI. This study has received IRB approval at the University of Utah as a waiver for consent and authorization.

They prefer centers have a minimum of 10 patients eligible for the study but will consider including centers with fewer patients. Centers will enter their patients' data in a REDCap database.

This study has been approved by the PACES research committee. Please click the link below for the protocol.

Please contact for more information or to participate.
