Many of us who have pro discs or other ADR have been safe to use the regular MRI's with 1.5 power....there is a newer MRI with more power the 3T MRI (3 Tesla) I have read varying studies of a 3T should not be used for ADR patients until further studies, even if the device is chro moly, based on higher heating temps near the tissues etc of the spine...usually this arises when getting a 3T for another body part whether a hip etc close to the ADR and the question arises should an ADR patient be put into the stronger 3T machine...or just use dye and the lower MRI the 1.5 for the area, but of course the 3T though perhaps not as clean as an MRI with dye it is far more refined than the 1.5 thus being enough not to use the dye and any issues one may have with dye.
So my question is has anyone had a 3T MRI with a Pro Disc or any other ADR or been turned away.
Thank for the assistance,
I had my Pro Disc placed in 2001, very successful L4/L5. Now dealing with arthritis in S1/l5 maybe radio abalation soon...but that's another issue for another day as this post about 3T use with ADR....thank you all wishing you a pain fee life
