Has anyone had an MRI with the Med-el Implant?


Recommended Posts

I am considering the Med-el Implant, but I am concerned about the restrictions on MRIs.

Has any actually had a full MRI done (tube vs open)?

Has anyone had an open MRI done?


Was it necessary to have the implant removed?

On my MED EL ID Card quoted "Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) requires precautionary measures and may be performed after prior consultantion with an official MED-EL office."


From what I understand in the UK, there's 2 MRI scanner Hospital, one in Manchester and Cambridge which is designed for Med-el implant to have MRI safety, about an hour drive for me.


Best to email Med-el for further information for your location.
