Airport Body Scanners/Heart Valve Ring

I have a question.......do airport "all over body scanners" detect annuloplasty rings?  I had a mitral valve repair done and  had an annuloplasty ring sewn onto the mitral valve.  I haven't flown in years and was wondering if the body scanner will detect that.  Anyone know??? Thanks
