Can you re-use head studs?

Hello, I put my engine together 3 years ago and I'd like to pull the heads and intake during the winter to check a few things out. Maybe a dumb question but... I have ARP Head studs, if I pull the heads - can I just bolt them back down and re-torque as procedure says? Or do I have to replace them?
 
Yes they can be reused. I have reused mine without any problems.

I would remove them though because they may move and break the sealant loose and cause them to leak when put back together. Remove them,clean and add your favorite sealer and reinstall, i use Loctite 567 on them.
