    Number 5 Rajesh Maru
    In 2018, Indian man Rajesh Maru was visiting an elderly relative in Mumbai. According to his family, a staff member asked Maru to carry an oxygen cylinder inside the room with the MRI scanner. The person in question reportedly assured Maru’s family that the machine had been turned off. This, unfortunately, wasn’t the case.
    What Is It?
    Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI is a medical imaging technique used to observe the processes and anatomy of the human body. The MRI scanner is a large cylindrical machine which creates a strong magnetic field around the body. Although the machine is complex, the way it works is quite simple to grasp. When the magnetic field is turned off, the nuclei return to their normal position and, in doing so, send out radio signals.
    Number 4 MRIs
    The item remained immovable and the building was locked down. The situation was only resolved after the machine’s manufacturer was contacted for assistance. Before we get to our next listing, let’s see what an MRI scanner can actually be used for.
    Where Is It Located?
    The MRI scanner is among the best diagnostic tools available in medicine today. Since its development in the 1970s and 1980s, it has gradually evolved to include more processes. This noninvasive technique uses high energy beams to remove tissue and the process may be monitored through magnetic resonance.
    How?
    It’s worth mentioning that MRI magnets are at least 1,000 times stronger than refrigerator magnets. If something metal is brought inside the room, it will be drawn to the inside of the scanner, where the patient is sitting. Substances, known as contrast dyes, may be administered through an IV to improve the imaging quality.
    Number 2 Michael Colombini
    The incident took place in 2001. The MRI scan was a way for doctors to monitor the boy’s progress after. As the 10-ton electromagnet was turned on, the tank was pulled towards the tube, at 20 to 30 feet per second.
    How to?
    These may differ slightly, depending on the country where the machine is used, but the overall safety protocol is usually the same.
    Number 1 Mumbai
    In November, 2014, two hospital workers in Mumbai spent roughly four hours sandwiched between a metal oxygen tank and an MRI machine. As they were preparing the machine for a scan, technician Swami Ramaiah asked ward boy, Sunil Jadhav, to bring him an oxygen mask. Jadhav, who’d never worked in an MRI room, misunderstood and brought him a 4-foot oxygen tank instead.

    I have two rods, four screws, and a metal wedge replacing one of my discs in my back and I've had MRI's since then, even on that area with no problems.

    They should have a metal detector in the entrance like Airport.

    I rather be subjected to jump scares because if I am trapped in an enclosed space for a long period of time I will have a panic attack

    This is a good video. I did notice that many of these pictures are of CT(CAT) machines; the ones that look like donuts and are only a meter or so deep. Thanks for the interesting content, please keep it up.

    Seems metal objects and a giant magnet is a hard concept for ppl to grasp.

    Yeah, abominations. On top of all that, don’t even try to pretend that 7 of those machines in a circle make a stargate. Save your money.

    Yeah that’s smart, take a large metal tube into a room with a giant glorified magnet. Jeez, just about all of these could have been avoided with some common sense. You literally can’t get an MRI if you have metal implants like joint replacements. The machine will quite literally rip the metal out of your body. It’ll be like someone shot you with a gun from the inside out
