Abstract
Imaging and laboratory test are vital components for accurate diagnosis of any medical condition. In the current scenario, computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have dominated the field of imaging. Although much is spoken and written about the radiation hazards of computerized tomography, safety aspect of MRI hardly receives any importance. A recent accident involving a diagnostic MRI unit in Mumbai highlights the importance of safety aspects being neglected in MRI. The authors of this article have made an attempt to highlight the facts about MRI-related fatal accidents and briefly review the safety protocol and procedures. © 2019 Journal of Datta Meghe Institute of Medical Sciences University, Published by Wolters Kluwer - Medknow.
