Since I Have clips that are safe for a 1.5 tesla MRI machine... am I really safe for that procedure. I had an appointment and could not even get into the door I was stuck with pure fear. I know that my clips are actually safe for the 3.0 as well. I will not be hurt by the MRI will I? Also I have had 3 pet scans for pheo's, 6 ct scans of my brain and I am concerned about the radiation. What do you think.

Brief Answer: Hello Detailed Answer: If clips are MRI compatible then no need to worry.You can speak to doctor who did clipping and also speak with manufacturer of clips so that you feel assured. Ct scans will not help in evaluating nerve. And after so many CT scans , radiation is a surely a concern.So better avoid it or keep it reserve for future.
