Why Can't You Wear Your Cool Metal Belt in an MRI?

What is an MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It's a giant camera for looking inside your body!

Super Strong Magnet

An MRI uses a super strong magnet to take pictures of your insides.

Metal Attracts Magnet

Metal objects are attracted to magnets. That's why metal sticks to fridge magnets!

Your Cool Metal Belt

If you wear a metal belt, it can get pulled by the MRI's magnet.

This pull can be very strong and dangerous. That's why no metal is allowed.

Safety First

Imagine your belt sticking to the MRI machine. Scary, right?

Imagine This!

Other Metal Items

It's not just belts! Watches, earrings, and even some zippers are a no-go.

Before the MRI

Doctors ask you to remove all metal to keep you safe.

Always double-check for metal items before an MRI.
