Out of interest, I've been given the MRI ID card, there is a group of numbers after name of implant. I'm guessing that they are the implant number and not of the processor? I've been given the leaflets that came with it. Although didn't see anywhere in the leaflets to explain this.

@Tracey_66 your ID card is different than mine.  My card has labels like implant serial number, type of implant etc.

Thank you @Mary Beth.

It tells me the name of implant e.g. Mi 1210 synchrony ST, so 810100 must be the serial number of that implant?I

Just thought, having read it again, has anyone had problems going through shops security systems with their implants?

Yes the serial number on the CI card is our internal serial number.

We remove the processors for MRI tests.

I have never had any problem going through store or airport security.

Although not told which processor I'll have, I think as most are paired  i.e. Synchrony 2 implant with sonnet  2 processor. I think it is likely as I've not the synchrony 2 implant it could be Just the Sonnet. Not that I'm complaining. I didn't know what implant that I have till reading the MRI ID card!!!

Med-El makes all processors backwards compatible so they work with all internals. You can use any Med-El processor with your internal.
