I have an MRI approved pace maker but my leads are 16 years old and not MRI compatible
I have been diagnosed by a 12 core biopsy with 2 cores showing "precursor" cancer cells.
My urologic oncologist has recommended an MRI guided biopsy to obtaine a more conclusive analysis to help further treatment options including watchfull waiting.
Two questions. 1. Has any of you guys had an MRI with non-compatible leads?
2. Being that the prostate is a distance from the pace maker leads, would an MRI be safe in my situation?
Any comments would be appreciated.
