Edit or remove any highlighted blue text before submitting.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a magnet and radio waves to make diagnostic medical images of the body. You will be placed on a narrow bed and then slid into a small tunnel approximately 6 feet in length and 25 inches in diameter. You will hear a loud machine-like noise.

Risk Language

Copy/Paste the following to the section labeled D. Risks/Discomforts:

Edit or remove any highlighted blue text before submitting.

There have been no ill effects reported from exposure to the magnetism or radio waves used in this test. A known risk is that the magnet could attract certain kinds of metal. Therefore, we will carefully ask you about metal within your body (this includes certain dyes found in tattoos). If there is any question about potentially hazardous metal within your body, you will be excluded from participation in this research study. We will also keep the examining room locked so that no one carrying metal objects can enter while you are in the scanner. Please inform the study staff if you have a history of claustrophobia (extreme anxiety in close spaces). This may also be a contraindication to participation in the study.
