Let’s have a detailed look here: Metal Objects : The magnetic fields used in MRI scans attract the metal objects if you wear them during scans. Some patients may use the medical implants like pacemakers, defibrillator device, cochlear implants which might get malfunctioned during MRI scans.   During pregnancy : For pregnant women, ultrasound and MRI scans are preferred as others have radiation which might affect the fetus .

But before giving the contrast media, radiologists will clearly diagnose if the patient has any previous health problems and is there medications are taken/continued by them. Based on their diagnosis, they will assure for the patient whether the contrast material is safe for them or not. Hence, there is nothing to worry about taking contrast media for MRI scans. Not able to find cancers : Yes, it is right that MRI is not helpful to diagnose all kind of cancers, but each device has its own purpose and limitations. Hence, MRI has its own advantages which are restricted for some other diagnostic needs. PET-CT Scans are usually considered for cancer identification and diagnosis. Scan Duration & claustrophobic : For claustrophobia patients, there are open MRIs available in some scan centers and also based on the scan type they are allowed to wear headphones which might also help the patients to get rid of the noises generated by the MRI scan machines.
