HOW TO PREVENT MRI HAZARDS?
Time and time again you hear MRI scare stories. Usually, it’s an oxygen tank, a wheelchair, or a gurney, that mistakenly gets attracted to the MRI magnet. While not often deadly, it can be a terrifying experience for a patient.
The most recent MRI projectile story happened to a Turkish man, a retired police officer, who brought in her personal firearm. No one was hurt in the incident, but it required hours of tense extraction from the MRI magnet.
How can we prevent these sorts of incidences from happening? For now, there is no definitive answer, but there are measures we can take for overall improved safety. For example, the SAMM System and SAMM MDallow for recorded video playback, while also monitoring for patient movement. Take a step in the right direction for MRI safety with our line of camera systems.
