Brief Answer: Yes,it is safe to have MRI with mentioned things. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX Thanks for writing to us It is absolutely safe to have MRI with Greenfield Filter,Stent and Mesh in human body. These things are incorporated securely in human tissues within six weeks after implantation due to ingrowth and other mechanisms,so there are no chances of displacement or dislodgement. Mentioned things are non ferromagnetic and it doesn't interfere with MRI at all. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
