If someone has a hip prosthesis can they have a C.T or M.R.I.?




  #2

their presence is not a problem as such (like it does not affect the patient), but it could distort the image. I think the signal is digitally modulated to adjust the distortions.


  #3

Actually the image would not show with MRI-I understand titanium is not magnetic..ThankYou


  #4

CT is ok,but MR not...patient would suffer from great pain at the location of prosthesis after these procedure


  #5

Ya CT should be ok, but MRI i will have to check on
with a radiologist friend. Any radiologist friend here please.
