Invited Safety of Strong, Static Magnetic Fields

  title={Invited Safety of Strong, Static Magnetic Fields},
  author={John F. Schenck},
Issues associated with the exposure of patients to strong, static magnetic fields during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are reviewed and discussed. The history of human exposure to magnetic fields is reviewed, and the contradictory nature of the literature regarding effects on human health is described. In the absence of ferromagnetic foreign bodies, there is no replicated scientific study showing a health hazard associated with magnetic field exposure and no evidence for hazards associated… CONTINUE READING
