Just ask your doctor, and be sure to tell the people before your scan.

If your scan doesn't go to the leg, then usually you can. Still, I'd tell your oncologist about the plate and let him decide; it's his living to know these things.


Troy
yes, it just will show up as a beg white patch on the radiograph. It is MRIs which use powerful magnets that you cannot get.

Yes, just make sure to tell them - radiologists deal with that stuff all the time.


DocJen
yes you can.
A CAT scan is essentially a lot of X Rays. The metal plate will deflect the XRays, so the image in that area will not be so good due to 'artefact'. So if the scan was of you leg, or of your pelvis and the plate was high up in the leg, it may make the scan slightly difficult to read.

An MRI scan invloves a big magnet, and it is this that is a problem with metalwork.
