Evidence that the magnetic field distortion of an artificial knee joint and an Elgiloy rod in ppm unit does not change at 0.4-T and 3.0-T MRI was demonstrated. The susceptibility of Elgiloy and Ti alloy rods was derived from the magnetic distortion maps and the value of Ti alloy rod especially agreed with the known susceptibility of its material. The obtained value of the magnetic field distortion is quantitatively reliable.
