Once surgeons put metal in you such as knees or neck; how can you ever have that part x-rayed again?


Or can you be? Why would they not opt to use plastic?

    I just wonder why a good grade of plastic wouldn't be better?

    Ah; well the way they always ask before they x-ray if you have any metal in you I always thought if you did it was bad news! lol

    Yes; MRI is really what I had in mind. I do wonder too though about the knee surgeries; it seems most have gone to plastic (my mom had that) but they still put metal in some ppl. I just wonder why it isn't just one way; the best way.
