Comments on potential health effects of MRI-induced DNA lesions: quality is more important to consider than quantity

Abstract:

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is increasingly being used in cardiology to detect heart disease and guide therapy. It is mooted to be a safer alternative to imaging techniques, such as computed tomography (CT) or coronary angiographic imaging.
