    yes, but at a different rate. The alloys in the ring do not respond to temperature changes as much as body tissue does.

    I have an MRI scheduled for next Tuesday. We're almost MRI buddies! I take my rings off every night so no worries about them getting stuck.

    Congrats on getting in so quickly!

    My friend had to schedule twice. First time, trying to stay still on the table meant pressure on the affected area. Couldn't stay still so my friend had to go to a stand-up MRI place. Twice through the machine!!

    My friend reports the dental floss worked like a charm! And he said to thank vel.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Yes but the ring will shrink in both it's inside and outside dimensions, trust me.
