I had an mri of my heart and it came back normal. When I went to get the mri I had a holter monitor on. They took it off before the test. When I got home I noticed there was still a node attached to me that they forgot to take off. I wore it during the mri. Could this have changed anything in the mri? Could this have made the mri look normal? Or would they have noticed if something was wrong with it?

  • No. The radiologist would have picked that up and its very common to have a node attached at the time of an MRI
