Can you have an MRI scan if you have a metal plate and screws on a broken bone?

Seeing as an MRI is like a giant electro magnet, if i did need to have an MRI scan in the future then what would happen to the metal plate and screws in have in my arm?

    Most screws and plates are now titanium and will not affect an MRI. Ask your doctor if your hardware is titanium.
