It is very important to let us know about any injuries involving metal, especially to the eyes, before you have an MR scan. Unlike implants, which are attached to structures and made of known materials, metal introduced from an injury could be attracted to MR scanner. You may still be able to be scanned if you have had a metal injury, but we will carefully assess this first.
