Can MRIs hurt?

[Click on Post Title for Link to External Article]

Yes, if the radiofrequency is able to heat your ECG cables and electrodes according to the FDA. This could lead to severe burns. The linked article, is actually an invitation to nurses and technicians to report such instances. Seems like a little haphazard. Wouldn't we better off with a well rounded study alongside the data collection from willful techs. Anyhow, I hope we get the answers soon, one way or the other...

MRIs have been reported to cause all kinds of pain depending on who you talk to. The medical mainstream would have you believe otherwise for reasons unknown to me. Why not just come out of the closet and admit the MRIs can cause discomfort in certain people for reasons which are still unknown.
