MRI with titanium implant

my mother had an operation on her spine which removed a 2cm tumor. The doctors reinforced this spinal area with a titanium mesh/cage. She also has had a hip replacement. Since before the spinal operation she has been in severe and increasing pain.
Alot of doctors,specialists have been involved but no one has approved an MRI and say that it is impossible because of the titanium implant. I have been reading publishings saying that it is possible.
I would like to have some solid and correct information on this subject.
