For the first video this is why Ritalin is made. On the second, I foresee a new MRI tech position opening. Nothing like dinging a 3 million dollar toy.

I wore my watch into an MRI once. Oops. I literally had no control over my arm. And it destroyed my watch.:rolleyes:

I would think so the skin doesn't provide magnetic field insulation.

You guys ever see the episode of ER where they bring the patient into the MRI room with a metal stretcher, and they walk away for a second and turn on the machine and it smashes the pt onto the machine!

Talking from Experience, Never had an incident with an MRI machine while I had Braces, or with the 6 Screws and 2 plates in my jaw.

The material they use I believe is not REAL metal, Someone can help me on this, But Im fairly certain that for some instances (As the ones your talking about) they arent real metal

I believe you just can't have any ferrous metals. So like iron, steel, or an alloy with a high amount of iron. So things that are aluminum tubing, or aluminum oxygen cylinders can be used, or like beryllium copper tools (non-spark wrenches and so forth) can be used.

Then some stainless steel is non-magnetic. I'm not really sure how, but when there is high amounts of nickel in it, it becomes non-magnetic.

no, metal plates do not get yanked out or slam you into the MRI machine, I was born with a clef lip and pallet and they had to extend out my maxilla out about 3 inches they put a metal plate and screws in my face and i was fine during my MRI during my motorcycle wreck (yes i asked the nurse if it would affect the plate and she said no)

Hmm, that's weird. I wonder why it wouldn't have any effect. Can you stick a magnet to your face and have it hold?

yeh there is also austenitic iron which is non-magnetic but unstable unless i think nickel is mixed with it. I think it is more common in non-magnetic stainless.

Finally there is a use for having a parent that works with metals.
