MRI Brain with contrast for Trigeminal
I am having symptoms of Trigeminal Neuralgia. My neurologist has advised me brain MRI with Contrast. However, i am having a metal dental implant in one of my teeth. Will CT Scan of brain will work in this condition or i will have to remove that dental implant and go for MRI only?
