Arrow MRI & Copper IUD

Hi Ladies,
I am having an MRI done tomorrow but I have a copper IUD. Does anyone know if this will be a problem?

Re: MRI & Copper IUD

Let them know when you fill out the paperwork beforehand, but being it's copper it isn't prone to magnets as steel objects would be. They could place lead shielding over that region if needed.
