MRI after vasectomy


From ML:-
I have had a vasectomy that also utilized clips in addition to removing a section of the vas deferens and have a question concerning the clips. I am not close to the doctor any longer or would ask him but what are the clips made of and would that be of concern in the event of needing a MRI do to the strong magnetic draw?

Currently, clips used for vasectomy are made of titanium which is not considered to be a contraindication for MRI scans. However, clips can be made of several different metals and depending on the era in which the clips were placed, one might not have had clips made from Titanium. Unfortunately, the only sure way to tell is to ask the surgeon who performed the vasectomy what type of clips were used.
