MRI Implant Safety
edited November 2015 in Magnets
Okay so I've been forum and wiki crawling quite a bit the last few months, and I'm looking at getting a magnet implanted in my hand. However, I'm a mixed martial artist and I injure myself quite a lot, and one question I can't seem to find the answer to is, what happens if you need an MRI and you have a neodymium magnet in your finger? Something tells me this wouldn't be safe... I did see on a thread somewhere that most of the time the magnets are too weak to trigger airport security detectors, so are they also too weak to interfere with an MRI's magnetic field? Also is there a solution to this if this is a safety hazard?
