I am scheduled to have an MRI of my head this next Monday to look/check for possible physical abnormalities which may be causing tinnitus and hearing loss in my right ear.
Obviously I don’t want to expose the electronics of either the pump or my Medtronic CGM transmitter to the MRI’s magnetic field. So those will be coming off before I have the procedure. But I’m wondering if I will be required to yank the entire sensor or if I can try to get away removing and then later reconnecting just the transmitter. As far as I know the only metal in the sensor is the (very) thin platinum wire in the probe.
Just asking for the heck of it. My experience with hospitals leads me to believe that if there is any doubt in their minds … and there seems to always be doubt … they’ll insist I pull the entire thing. Also, Monday will be my 6’th day on this Enlite so it will probably be fading away on me by that time anyway.
