Title: Safety of human MRI at static fields above the FDA 8T guideline: Sodium imaging at 9.4T does not affect vital signs or cognitive ability.
Author(s): Atkinson, Ian C.; Renteria, Laura; Burd, Holly; Pliskin, Neil H.; Thulborn, Keith R.
Subject(s): ultra-high field MRI static magnetic field
Abstract: Purpose: To assess whether exposure to a 9.4T static magnetic field during sodium imaging at 105.92 MHz affects human vital signs and cognitive function. Materials and Methods: Measurements of human vital signs and cognitive ability made before and after exposure to a 9.4T MR scanner and a mock scanner with no magnetic field are compared using a protocol approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Results: Exposure to a 9.4T static magnetic field during sodium imaging did not result in a statistically significant change in the vital signs or cognitive ability of healthy normal volunteers. Conclusion: Vital sign and cognitive ability measurements made before and after sodium imaging at 9.4T suggest that performing human MRI at 105.92 MHz in a 9.4T static magnetic field does not pose a health risk.
