Inspire Medical Systems Inc. said the Food and Drug Administration has granted approval for the use of full-body magnetic resonance imaging scans in conjunction with its sleep apnea therapy.

The Golden Valley, Minn.-based company, which develops treatments for patients with obstructive sleep apnea, previously had approval to use MRI scans for only the head, neck and extremities.

The expansion to full-body capabilities is retroactive, meaning it will apply to all patients that already have the company's Inspire IV neurostimulator device in place.

"Providing the full range of scan options enables us to better help all current and future patients with their imaging needs," Chief Executive Tim Herbert said.
