  • Is it safe to go for MRI for Bard 3D Mesh

    Posted by wilfred on February 2, 2018 at 1:50 pm

    Hi everyone,
    i am scheduled for a pelvis MRI on Monday. I had a Bard 3D mesh implanted 10 weeks earlier. Somewhere I read that MRI or other imaging tests can cause the mesh to get deformed. Please advice if it is safe to go for MRI.
    Thanks

    Thanks Jnomesh for the reply. Yes I am only getting MRI and not CATSCAN so I think I should be fine.

    I’ve heard reports that cat scans can cause the mesh to harden (and don’t know if this is true or not) but not MRI’s
