About Us

HEALTIS is a MRI Safety and Compatibility laboratory based in Nancy, France; founded in 2012 by Yannick Ponvianne, Cédric Pasquier and Jacques Felblinger.

HEALTIS was created from the research laboratories dedicated to MRI IADI INSERM U947 and CIC-IT INSERM CIT801, which have more than 20 years of experience in the design and development of instruments which operate in the MRI environment.

Since 2012, HEALTIS has acquired a strong recognition for its experience in the field of medical device safety in MRI, focusing on the quality of its services, customer support and the research and development of new activities.

HEALTIS now offers a range of services for medical device manufacturers who want to evaluate the safety of their products in the MRI environment or design an MRI-compatible device:

  • MRI-compatible device design support,
  • Medical Device safety training in an MRI environment, for R & D teams or regulatory affairs,
  • Technical and Regulatory Assistance, to define a relevant evaluation strategy for determining and justifying worstcases,
  • Numerical modeling for risk assessment or worstcase determination
