Risks: Thermal, Displacement
- Devices that are removable MUST be removed.
- Caution is advised as some denture devices have a magnetic component which allows routine removal by the patient.
- If dentures are permanently implanted and non-magnetic, MRI is permissible with precautions to monitor for thermal injury.
Bottom line: MRI permissible with the exception of magnetically attached devices. Remove all removable components prior to MRI. Monitor for thermal injury.
