I was told by one of the clerks at the MRI clinic that I can have an MRI as long as it is titanium and no other metal including screws. Is this true or will I have to have a cat scan for the rest of my life?
I have a titanium rod in my back. Can I have an MRI?

8 years ago I had rods and screws put in my back that they said was Titanium, is it safe to go into a closed M.R.I.
It is no problem for you to have an MRI with titanium in your back. The staff at the MRI facility will ask you if you have any metal in your body, but once they know it is titanium you will be cleared to have the MRI.
