Good masks without any metal in them...

I am having 3 different MRI's the week of the 10th.  I need to wear a mask that doesn't have metal in it during the MRI.  I have a Happy Mask, but I think there is metal in the nosepiece.  I will confirm with them.

Any good masks out there that you know don't have metal?

That's a tough one.

Some of hard plastic respirator style masks might be metal-free - something like Castle-grade maybe

Cheapie solution is to use a surgical mask from which your've removed the wire,  under a well-fitting cloth mask, or surgical mask alone with medical tape across the top to fix the gaps.

When I have an MRI or a PET scan, I wear whatever mask I want, and as I’m lying down, about to go into the machine, the tech switches it out for a mask without metal. 
 

I realize that the facility may have told you to make sure to bring a mask without metal, but in my experience they would still make me switch over to the mask that they provide.

I was at an urgent care clinic yesterday-  and they required me to wear one of their disposable masks.

does the MRI facility provide them (to make sure the patient has the appropriate - and clean - type of mask?

When I had an MRI a few months ago, I was required to wear(change to) the disposable mask that was provided by the facility. Same thing happened when I went in for scheduled surgery.

This is what happened when I had surgery in May.  The lady I spoke with to make the appts said to bring the mask.
