Caution About Patient Masks and MRI Use

The metal nose strip in some surgical masks presents a hazard for patients who are receiving an MRI scan. The interaction of the metal with the magnetic waves can cause burns.

Patients receiving an MRI should be masked, but it is recommended to use one without a metal nose strip.
