Will an MRI, X-ray, or CT scan damage Lyric or place the ear at risk?
Lyric must be removed before you have an MRI. Unlike an MRI, an X-ray or CT scan will not damage or dislodge the hearing aid because a magnet is not used.
However, you should inform the physician and/or technician about the Lyric hearing aid. If an X-ray or CT scan of the ear or head is needed, the hearing aid may need to be removed. Let your physician know that you are wearing Lyric if you are having surgery or a medical procedure of any kind.
