Conventional mesh implants are mostly undetectable in diagnostic radiology.
DynaMesh® visible implants can be detected using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) [7,29A,51,54,56,62,69-71,76,90] – both in standard sequences and in high-resolution, three-dimensional images and even films. As such, position and condition of the implant can be determined reliably and accurately.
DynaMesh® visible is the world’s first technology to visualise textile implants. The PVDF filament is mixed with ferromagnetic micro-pigments according to a proprietary process that ensures optimum pigment incorporation. This innovation has won an award from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF 01EZ 0849).

During MRI scans, the part of the body being analysed is scanned step-by-step and deconstructed into many ‘wafer-thin optical slices’. At the end, these ‘slices’ are reconstructed to form 3-dimensional images or motion sequences (remodelling).
