Remember how I said MRIs are safe, well let me clarify.

They’re safe as long as you don’t bring metal into the room. This is an MRI machine getting to know a stapler. They don’t become friends. The MRI psychotically murders the stapler in fact.

Hospitals screen people very carefully before letting them in one of these, for example metalworkers aren’t allowed use one because they’ve too many microscopic metal shavings in their eyes (gah!) and after reading that I need to go lie down for a while.

I’m back now and only mildly nauseated. The rooms are built Magneto’s prison style. No metal.

You shouldn’t be scared of MRIs. They’re one of the best and safest imaging techniques we have. But magnets are cool.
