Can an MRI of the brain be taken after insertion of cardiac stents?

I have two metal stents via a cardiac procedure in 2000. My doctor now wants me to have an MRI of the brain where the MRI is scanning near or at the stent area. Could I be in danger of receiving enough magnetism to relocate or shift the stents, magnetize them polarity wise and cause them to move in the heart?

in MRI brain; imaging is done only in a specific area .so no need to be worry if you had stenting in past.
