A stainless steel hip arthroplasty

Can we get an mri if someone has had a stainless steel hip arthroplasty done in 2015

My mom is pending an mri brain and I am not able to get an answer regarding this question

If we can’t get an mri for better idea of her brain what is the next thing that can be done

Can we cover her extremity with a protective shield to get an mri at all?

Any help will be appreciated


Get it done.

Hip is far from brain so no artifact in ROI.

Besides its steel implant…

not asking for artifacts

Asking about magnetic interaction of the implant and the mri magnet

There is no problem in regards to doing mri brain, mild heating at the area of implant is a small possibility , Go ahead with mri

no someone else mentioned artifact…that was in reply to that
