Does anyone know if a metal plate with 6 screws in ankle will set off the detectors in the airport?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Non Magnetic

They probably will not set off the metal detector as they are non-magnetic.
And I have had no patient mention to me that their fracture hardware set off the detector.
