I understand that the latest literature indicates that you should wait at least one year after having a cardiac stent inserted before you have an MRI of the kidney or heart area. Anyone hear the same?

You will need to avoid having an MRI test for six weeks.  https://www.fhshealth.org/DI_proced/stent.html

If you have a metal stent placed, you shouldn’t have a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test within the first couple of months after the procedure.

Do not have a MRI within eight weeks of stent implant.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of single or two overlapping
CYPHER® Stents has been shown to be safe in MRI units with
a magnetic strength of three Tesla or less. Notify your doctor
that you have a CYPHER® Stent before you have an MRI
medical scan.
