Is it possible to undergo MRI of ankle and knee  with IM nailing of tibia while hardware inside?.it's titanium made.

Yes: Titanium not a problem. Most if not all orthopedic hardware these days is MRI safe. It is always a good idea, though, to double check and make sure of exactly what type of device/hardware was placed, and tell the MRI technologist prior to the study.Only problem with the scan is that the hardware may distort the image and limit evaluation.The tech can sometimes use special sequences to limit this ...Read more
