    I was just reading they are not necessarily ruled out after TKR. Depends on how old the MRI scanner is. That knee replacement parts are non-ferrous. This is really good news, bc I'm also dealing with spine issues.

    We have an article about MRI's after Joint Replacement. I had a MRI at 6 weeks due to an ankle injury, I did feel some mild magnetism around my knee, but otherwise it was same as before.
    Here is an article in the Library about MRI scans and joint replacements .
