Magnetic resonance imaging is a common preventative and diagnostic method used in medicine, and at times this technology can be invaluable. Of course there are some health questions associated with the practice, in particular — what’s the effect of the powerful magnetic fields? But, now, not only are the magnetic frequencies something to consider, new concerns over the drugs used to produce clearer images have surfaced as research has shown them to leave toxic residue in the brain. These findings have shown the importance of more stringent health monitoring prior to MRI application.
