    hi,im due to have MRI scan & you will get a screening questionaire through the post before you have it done.
    it asks...do you have any implant or joint replacements?
    when was your most recent op?
    plus other question relating to your health.
    i had to ring to say i was excepting appointment.
    then you take the questionaire in with you.

    hope thats helped.debsx

    Hi Joan

    Debs is right you do have to fill in a questionnaire but it doesn't always come in the post so it may be worth giving them a ring before you go for your MRI to save you a trip just in case if you are concerned. The MRI department will explain to you what is allowable and what is not.

    Have a good weekend
