Is an MRI safe for pregnant women? Yes, an MRI is generally safe for pregnant women.
However, it is important to inform the healthcare provider performing the MRI about the pregnancy and any concerns. They may recommend waiting until after the pregnancy to have the MRI or may take additional precautions to ensure the safety of both the mother and the baby during the procedure. It is also important to note that the strong magnetic field of an MRI machine can affect certain medical devices, such as pacemakers, so it is important to inform the healthcare provider of any medical devices or implants before the MRI.
MRI poses no known risk to the fetus in the second and third trimester. MRI in the first trimester should only be performed after consultation with radiology faculty. Breast feeding can be continued without interruption after administration of iodinated contrast or gadolinium to a lactating patient.
