- Thermal injury if metallic component is present
- Shunt calibration error if programmable valve not reprogrammed
- Determine if programmable valve
- Take precautions to limit thermal injury if a metallic component is present
Comments: If programmable VP shunt, requires re-programming after MRI, therefore coordinate scheduling to allow timely resetting.
Bottom line: MRI permissible. Monitor for thermal injury. Requires re-programming after MRI
