You may have read the news recently about a case where a man was sucked into an MRI machine in India and it resulted in his death.
But how did this occur?
MRI units use strong magnetic fields and radio-frequency waves to create images. The magnetic field generated by the MRI scanner will attract objects containing ferromagnetic metals (iron, nickel, cobalt) with considerable force, and it is our job as MRI Technicians to ensure that you are danger free before entering the MRI room.
How are we ensuring that this kind of thing doesn’t happen in our MRI departments?
Questions, Questions and more Questions! At our sites where MRI is available, we give all of our MRI patient’s a questionnaire regarding not just their medical history, but also working history to ensure that all corners are covered. For more information about our MRI procedures and protocols please feel free to contact us and talk to any of our lovely staff.
Strathfield Medical Imaging unfortunately does not have an MRI department, however if you require an MRI scan, please refer to our sister sites to make a booking:

The expectant parents from Thatcham, England, about 55 miles west of London, were at the doctor’s office for their baby’s 28-week scan.
During a 4D ultrasound, the baby turns his head to face mum and dad. He then gives a little wave. Now that’s a womb with a view!
Obstetric ultrasounds are common practice in medical imaging centres and are used to monitor the growth and development of a growing fetus. It is a very safe and accurate investigation of your unborn baby as ultrasound uses harmless high frequency inaudible sound waves to obtain images.
For the development of the growing embryo, multiple stages of ultrasound imaging are usually conducted throughout each trimester of the pregnancy. Continue reading
