We recently had a specialist on the gold markers and Calypso beacons at our UsTOO group and that specific question was asked. His answer was simply that it should not be a problem. Many men with staples after surgery have no issues with airport security and the tracers are very small. I would think that brachytherapy guys would have a bigger problem but I have never heard of any issues there either.
Enjoy your trip and be safe...
