Why Doctors Don't Like Metal in MRI Rooms

What is an MRI Scan?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It's a giant camera that helps doctors see inside your body without surgery!

Super Magnets

MRI machines have super strong magnets. They help get clear pictures of what's inside you.

Metal Attracts

Metal objects can be pulled towards the magnet really fast, just like superheroes in movies.

Danger Zone

If metal flies towards the magnet, it can hurt someone. That's why doctors say no metal in MRI rooms.

Things like coins, keys, and even some toys can be dangerous around MRI machines.


Doctors ask you to remove earrings, necklaces, or any metal accessories before entering the MRI room.

Jewelry Alert

You might wear a hospital gown. It doesn't have any metal, so it's safe!

Special Clothes

Doctors check everyone to make sure no metal goes into the MRI room.

Safe Check

Keeping metal out keeps you and everyone else safe while the MRI works its magic!

Why So Serious?

Once the room is checked and clear, you're all set for a safe scan.
