Extreme magnetic field: What should be done in an emergency?
The fire brigade and the emergency services need to exercise utmost caution when dealing with the extreme magnetic field caused by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners in emergency situations. Therefore, the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry invited the municipal fire brigade to use its MRI scanner for education and training purposes before it was finally shut down after 18 years of continuous operation.
