Can You Bring a Comic Book into an MRI Room?

MRI Machines are Special

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It's a big machine that helps doctors see inside your body!

MRI and Magnets

The MRI machine uses a very strong magnet to work.

Metal and Magnets

Anything metal can be pulled by the MRI's magnet, which can be dangerous.

Comic Books

Comic books often have staples, which are made of metal.

Because of the staples, you can't bring regular comic books into the MRI room.

No Metal Allowed

You can bring books or comics with no metal, like those glued or sewn together.

What Can You Bring?

Before the MRI

Always ask the technician what is safe to bring into the room.

Staying Calm and Still

It's important to stay still during the MRI, so listening to stories or music through headphones might be better.

If you're unsure about what you can bring, just ask the MRI staff.
