Cancer and Oncology Q 102

The nurse is preparing for a female client for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to confirm or rule out a spinal cord lesion. During the MRI scan, which of the following would pose a threat to the client?
    A. The client lies still
    B. The client asks questions
    C. The client hears thumping sounds
    D. The client wears a watch and wedding band

Correct Answer: D. The client wears a watch and wedding band

Option D: During an MRI, the client should wear no metal objects, such as jewelry, because the strong magnetic field can pull on them, causing injury to the client and (if they fly off) to others.

Options A and B: The client must lie still during the MRI but can talk to those performing the test by way of the microphone inside the scanner tunnel.
Option C: The client should hear thumping sounds, which are caused by the sound waves thumping on the magnetic field.
