Is It Possible To Do An MRI Brain While Wearing Braces?
Hello, I want to ask is it possible to do an MRI Brain while using braces?
Hi Stefanie, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. MRI or Magnetic Resonance Imaging is one of the imaging methods in the medical world, which aims to see the inside of the body more specifically than using X-rays. As the name implies, this tool uses magnetic power and this is the main reason for the prohibition of the use of metal materials in patients who will undergo an MRI examination.
In addition, patients who use pacemakers, iron clips in the brain, metal objects in the eyes, claustrophobic disorders should also not have an MRI. If a person has an iron plate as a result of surgery on his back, it is still okay to do an MRI, but the results will be blurry.
We suggest discussing it again with the doctor who asked for the examination to be carried out to avoid misunderstandings. So, hopefully useful.
