Title: MULTI-LAYER COATING SYSTEM AND METHOD
Abstract:
A system and method for coating implantable medical devices so that they do not interfere with MR imaging are described. Using any of the coating processes well known to those skilled in the art, e.g., physical vapor deposition such as evaporation, sputtering, or cathode arc, or chemical vapor deposition, spraying, plasma polymerization, plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition and the like, multiple sources, including at least one source of an electrically insulating material and at least one source of an electrically conducting material, are oriented and shielded so as to coat separate sections of the implantable medical device. The object being coated is then rotated so that overlapping spiral coatings of the materials from the different coating sources are produced on the object.
