No metal in the MRI scanner



Yeah...here's the reason why they have this rule. A pretty good rule know that you think about it. But, what about medical metal parts(bolts, prosthesis, and so on)? What happens with them? Anyway, it's cool! Enjoy!

Medical Metal

Modern medical metal as used in bone pins, false joints etc. in non magnetic and therefore not a problem in an MRI scanner. This is the same reason that it does not set off metal detectors at airports.
