Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) procedures: protection of patients and volunteers from exposure

This document (RCE-7) provides advice on limiting exposure to static magnetic fields, time-varying electromagnetic fields and acoustic noise from MRI.



The document also sets out recommendations on best practice and further research needs.

The advice provided recognises the clear benefits to individual patients undergoing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations and more generally, through research involving volunteer exposures, to increasing medical knowledge for the benefit of all. The document was prepared by the MRI Patients and Volunteers Group.
