In recent years MRI safety has received increased media attention with growing public concern. From controversies over the use and side-effects of gadolinium to projectile accidents, a serious adverse MRI event always makes news. It doesn’t have to. It is possible to practice completely without incident, as long as you understand the essence of MRI safety.
