  • MRI scan question please

    Does anyone know if you can have an MRI scan of your stomach/gut area if you have a permanent metal plate in your wrist which I have from a fracture. I need an MRI for digestive issues. Is there any way of isolating the wrist, if not what do people do if they need an MRI and have this issue? Thank you
