MR SAFE as defined by the ASTM International document is applied to an item that poses no known hazards in all MR environments. MR SAFE items would include nonconducting, nonmagnetic items such as a plastic Petri dish. The document further states that an item may be determined to be MR SAFE by providing a scientifically based rationale rather than test data. Unlike the previous FDAfs definition of MR Safe, the new MR SAFE may only be applied if the item is 100% safe, without exception, regardless of MR system field strength or any environmental or extenuating circumstances.
MR CONDITIONAL is defined by the ASTM International as an item that has been demonstrated to pose no known hazards in a specified MR environment with specified conditions of use. Conditions that may be used to define the specified MR environment include field strength, spatial gradient, RF fields, specific absorption rate (SAR) as well as the potential for additional conditions such as operational conditions for a device. The MR CONDITIONIAL label is used to alert the user that there are certain limitations to the usability of the item, or the testing that was performed. As an example, an item may have been tested for a 1.5-Tesla system, but not a 3-Tesla.
MR UNSAFE as defined by the ASTM International is any item that is a known threat or poses a hazard in all MR environments. An example of an MR UNSAFE item would be a pair of ferromagnetic scissors, or any item constructed of ferrous metals.
