  • The authors present the case of a professional football player with an immediate and sustained cutaneous reaction (“burn”) at the site of lower extremity tattoos that occurred during magnetic resonance imaging of the pelvis. [...] Key Method Patients who develop this reaction may be treated prophylactically or symptomatically with a cold compress to assist with completion of the examination.Expand Abstract
