In brief: Yes

Modern day cataract surgery is minimally invasive and can even be done with just eye-drop (topical) anesthesia.
While an implant (silicone or acrylic) is placed during the surgery, there are no restrictions on any future nuclear imaging, mri, ct scan etc..

As discussed above, after a cataract operation you should have no problem undergoing MRI, CT, nuclear medicine, ultrasound imaging.
