Good morning Dave!...and welcome to the CP forum!
Yes!...you may get an MRI with a Stent!...I have had several MRI's and had a Stent put in after my Heart Attack back in 2002.
It sounds like you do need one! I too have the chest pain...but mine is more of a cramp that comes on while sitting up in bed, and I believe mine comes from my Cervical problems.
Good luck, and again Welcome! Enjoy!
