Q: Is penile implant contraindicated for MRI?

Answer: Not always, but caution is advised.

Penile implant is unlikely to severely injure a patient undergoing an MRI but it can be very uncomfortable for a patient in case of some brands of ferromagnetic penile implants. Radiology should be notified with specific brand of penile implant.
