Once you've been in the MRI field for any length of time, you start hearing
all of the various horror stories about thing
that have flown into a
scanner. Often, newcomers don't take the real danger of flying objects
seriously until they witness
an oxygen tank or gurney flying into a magnet
themselves. This page will contain a collection of pictures and stories
of metalic projectiles. Please show this page to all MRI newcomers, for
their own safety and the safety of their patients!
Please send any pictures and/or stories you have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let me know if you don't mind having your name posted with the picture/story
or if you would rather remain anonymous (out of embarrassment?)
For more information on MRI safety issues, I recommend you go to
Dr. Frank Shellock's site www.MRIsafety.com.
P.S. To you contributors, let me know if you want to remain anonymous
