Risks and measures concerning the magnetic field during anMRI examinationA literature reviewIsis Salas Eriksson Narmin Moshye Institution for Health Science Luleå University of TechnologyAbstract Introduction: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a crucial procedure in diagnostic imaging in recent years. The static magnetic field is the main component of the MRI scanner and it is always turned on. The radiology nurse should adopt proper precautions to screen each patient thoroughly by questioning about any ferromagnetic objects as well as ferromagnetic implants each patient has inside. Aim: The purpose of this study was to describe and compile the occurring risks around the magnetic field in an MRI examination and the role of the radiology nurse in preventing MRI related incidents. Method: The study was conducted as a literature review. Result: The result shows that MRI related accidents have occurred to patients and radiology nurses due to magnetic field exposure, ferromagnetic objects and implants patients have. The result also indicated that MRI related accident can be prevented by staff safety training, adequate information and effective communication. Conclusion: It is vital that the radiology nurse is properly trained on MRI safety in order to properly inform and communicate well with patients prior and during MRI examination.Keywords: Magnetic resonance imaging, safety, accidents, risk, checklists, ballistic, nurse and radiology.
