Custom engraving means every ID works for you!
Choose the style you prefer, and we will engrave it with your diagnosis, MRI restrictions, treatment considerations, and other pertinent information.
MRI, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging, is a commonly used diagnostic tool in hospitals and Emergency Rooms. Some people cannot have MRIs, can have them with certain precautions or restrictions, or could suffer great injury or illness as a result of an MRI. For example, people who are allergic to contrast dye must discuss their options before an MRI. Pregnant women typically should not have MRIs unless the benefits often outweigh the risks, and again, this is something to discuss with your physician. People with heart stents cannot have MRIs because these and other metal heart and/or blood vessel devices (pacemakers, artificial heart valves, and others) can cause internal injuries with MRIs.
A “NO MRI”/METAL IMPLANT MEDICAL ID COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE
Because magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used in emergency situations during which you may not be able to advocate for yourself, and because the injuries or illnesses you could incur as a result of an MRI are so severe, it is imperative that you wear a medical ID with your diagnosis(es) and your MRI restriction information listed. We recommend listing your name, diagnosis(es), treatment considerations, any medications, all allergies, and multiple emergency contact numbers.
Here are some examples of what to engrave on a “No MRI” medical ID:
