Father had titanium hip replacement last year, now may require imaging of shoulder bone, which has lump on it. Would MRI be allowed given titanium hip?

MRI COMPATIBLE. Titanium implants are MRI compatible. People with nontitanium implants should inform the radiologist or technician prior to the procedure; however, most joint implants are firmly attached inside bone and will not pose a serious problem. People with internal metallic surgical staples from healed surgeries should also inform the radiologist or technician prior to the procedure.
