Will there be a problem if I have had surgery in which metal has been implanted?

As a general rule, no. However, please be sure to inform your technologist of any prior surgeries before your exam. Patients with the following should NOT have an MRI:

  • Pacemakers
  • Difibulators
  • Certain aneurysm clips
  • Certain neurostimulators
  • Certain implants that are not MRI safe.

So I guess you'd better be sure you have your fibulas in place before you get into the magnet.


Don't even think about using your feet!
