MRI and cartilage piercings?

I have to get an MRI of my ankle in a few weeks and I just got two cartilage piercings a week ago. I really don’t want to take them out because they are just now starting to feel better and don’t hurt so much anymore.
If I have to take them out, is there something I can do to keep the holes open? It will be less than an hour that they’re out.
Do I absolutely have to take them out? Last time I got an MRI (of my head) I was allowed to wear jeans with a metal zipper/buttons.

    You may be asked to take them out, so what I suggest doing is revisiting the piercer and explain to him/her the situation. They may be able to give you some advice as to what to do.
