Is an MRI scan advisable after coronary stent placement?
My answer as follows:
Welcome on HealthcareMagic!
Regarding your concern, I would explain that all current coronary stents are not made of ferromagnetic metal material.
This means that there is no contraindication to MRI.
Nevertheless, an MRI of 1.5 Tesla would be safer than 3 Tesla.
Hope to have been helpful to you! Let me know if I can assist you further.
