International Travel

I am leaving tomorrow at 8:30 to go to Austria for work puropses, my question is this, I have a titanium plate bolted to my femur, will the metal detector pick that up? I went to a court room and had to walk through one there and it did not go off. Are the ones at airports stronger? Any insite would be much appreciated...

Re: International Travel

Simply tell the TAS people that you have a titanium plate in your foot before being screened. Also, if you have any medical record regarding the plate take it with you just in case they hassle you.

I'm going to Thailand in 5 days. I don't have a metal plate but I figured it would be OK to mention this, given the thread title.
