Study type: Medical/biological study (observational study)

Absence of harmful effects of magnetic resonance exposure at 1.5 T in utero during the third trimester of pregnancy: a follow-up study. med./bio.

Published in: Magn Reson Imaging 2004; 22 (6): 851-854

Aim of study (acc. to author)

To evaluate possible harmful effects of magnetic resonance exposure (MRI) on fetus. A group of 35 children 1 and 3 years of age, and nine children between 8 and 9 years of age, that were exposed to magnetic resonance during the third trimester of pregnancy, were checked for possible adverse effects.
