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.

Have you ever had an MRI?

I had an MRI today (liver). It was really interesting first you have to take off anything that may intefere with the procedure. They put an IV in your arm and they give you breathing instructions. They strap you to a board (they have blankets if you’re cold) stick plugs in your ear, give you headsets (so that you can listen to their instructions on how and when to breath) and then they push you inside a tube but not before giving you an emergency call button.

Being inside the tube was the most interesting part to me. It made me think about what it must be like to lay inside a coffin (which wasn’t as bad as i had imagined). As i lay there i wondered if anyone ever gets inside to clean it (lol). Sometimes you slide up and down inside the tube. I thought it would have been nice if the radiologist would have told me before he jolted me but thats okay because other than that he was nice.

The noise was really funny. I started to feel as if i was in some sort of spaceship because of the weird noises. With some of the different noises i would get a warm sensation. I can’t describe it though. It was just weird not painful just weird.

Finally they pull you out and remove the straps, the headset and ear plugs. Don’t pull your own ear plugs out because it feels good when the radiologist does it.

Did you have a good or bad MRI experience? What was the MRI for?

How accurate is a MRI Scan?

So I’ve had MRI scan done for my ankle/heel. The area where anterior talofibular ligament is located is swollen and when I put weight on that leg, it hurts severely. So the MRI that I had done on my akle about roughly 8 months ago reveled nothing wrong with my ankle. So idk why its still swollen and hurts everytime I put weight on it. Is it a possibility that the MRI was not totally accurate because I remember falling asleep for a short while during the procedure. Is it a good idea for me to get another MRI done on my ankle?

Thanks for your answers!!!

Getting an MRI tommorow, tips?

Hi so I’m getting an MRI of my lumbar spine tommorow and want to know some tips.

First of all do you go in on stomach or back?
