Orthopaedic prosthesis, partial knee system

Biomet® Oxford Partial Knee implants are composed of non-ferromagnetic materials such as Titanium (Ti-6Al-4V), Cobalt Chrome (Co-Cr-Mo), Tantalum and ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). Biomet has performed bench testing and numerical simulations on Oxford Partial Knee implants in a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) environment. These tests determined the non-clinical effects of MRI based on scientifically relevant characteristics of the Oxford components. MR Safety Information The Oxford Partial Knee is determined to be MR Conditional in accordance to ASTM F2503-08 Standard Practice for Marking Devices and Other Items for Safety in the Magnetic Resonance Environment. MR Conditional refers to an item that has been demonstrated to pose no known hazards in a specified MR environment with specified conditions of use, as stated below. Safety information for the use of MRI procedures (i.e. imaging, angiography, functional imaging, spectroscopy, etc.) pertains to shielded MRI systems under the following specifications:
