Groshong Catheter – This is usually safe to scan, however some of them have a small metal clip which needs to be removed prior to the scan.

Rings – Rings are okay to keep on if they are difficult to get off. They will not be affected by the magnetic field and will not cause the patient any harm during the scan. One exception might be if we are scanning a hand or wrist since metal near the area of the scan may cause artifact or interference in the imaging. Earrings will need to be taken out, as will nose rings, lip rings, tongue studs, and other body piercings, etc.
Previous Metal in the Eyes – If you have ever had any metal chips or fragments in your eyes from welding, grinding, or any accidents of any sort, an eye x-ray must be taken prior to the study. Even if the metal fragment was taken out, or came out on its own, or if it occurred a long time ago, an x-ray is the only way to confirm that there are no fragments remaining. This is important because if there are any small fragments in the eye, it could potentially damage the eyes. We will arrange these orbital x-rays prior to your scan. If there is any question about whether there may be metal in your eye, the x-ray must be taken.
Hypersensitivity Reactions to Metallic Implants
Eye Shadow – Some eye makeup has a metallic base and may cause your eyelids to flutter. Therefore, if you are having a study done of your head, please remove all eye makeup before coming to the MRI centre.

Eye and Ear Surgeries – If you have had any eye or ear surgery, please notify us during your screening. There are certain eye/ear surgeries in which a metal implant is used and may cause harm to the patient, although most are safe. We may need to get the operative report or talk to the surgeon’s office. In some cases, an x-ray can identify metal implants if there is a question about this.

Today there is a new type of metal-on-metal prosthesis used in the ANCA medical centre. ( en ) These are fabricated from a harder cobalt-chromium alloy, and thus consist of a metal-on-metal couple. This new combination creates a differential hardness between the two moving parts. This differential makes that the metal is likely to release less particles into the body and wear less over time. ( ) In all hip prostheses the femoral head wears quicker than the acetabular shell (except the metal-on-polythylene ones (hard-on-soft)). The difference in hardness is a major advantage over the previous metal-on-metal prostheses and even more over the metal-on-polyethylene prostheses.

The increasing number of total hip replacements in young patients in recent years, is accompanied by an increased number of revision operations due to excessive wear of the polyethylene in the young active patient, leading to osteolysis and loosening of the prosthesis. For this reason, there has been extensive research to find alternative bearings with better wear properties to cope with this tremendous devastating problem. At this moment, ceramic-on-ceramic and metal-on-metal seem to be the most suited alternatives for the metal-on-polyethylene bearing in the young active patient.
Allergy to Orthopedic Joint Replacement and Metal …
The goals of total hip replacement (arthroplasty) are to provide relief of pain and discomfort, improve function and enhance stability in patients suffering from arthritis or any disabling orthopedic hip problem. This goal was originally met in the late 1960’s and has been improved over the past several decades.
Joint replacement is a common surgical procedure with a high success rate. In an arthritic hip, the damaged ball (the upper end of the femur) is replaced by a metal or ceramic ball attached to a metal stem fitted into the femur (with or without cement), and a plastic or ceramic socket (fitted into a metal socket) that is implanted into the pelvis, replacing the damaged socket.
