Why it is difficult to see the metal in my head?

I have a plate in my head since 1975. I am trying to have a picture of it. However, all the radiologists I've been to, can't see it. It wasn't taken out. Why they cannot see it?

No reason why they shouldn't see it. A general x-ray will also show it.
