In brief: Should be ok

Mr scanning causes heating of some metals and movement of ferrous metals.
Modern day coils are made from platinum etc that are mr compatible. Vibration is not an issue. Confirm with your surgeon.

In brief: Check with neurosurg

The concern with mris and aneurysm coils is whether or not they have MRI compatible metal.
Generally, the coils that are currently used (at least in the United States) are all MRI compatible. You should check with your neuro-interventionalist or neurosurgeon who placed the coils. Generally the vibration of the MRI is not enough to move the coils.
