Frequent Use Of Magnetic Resonance Scanners (MRI) Increases The Risk Of Hearing Loss

Frequent Use Of Magnetic Resonance Scanners (MRI) Increases The Risk Of Hearing Loss    

More Powerful Models Have More Magnetism, But Also Generate Higher Noise    

Magnetic resonance imaging has given physicians the possibility of visualizing the brain, spinal cord, and other body parts, allowing an early diagnosis of serious conditions. However, it has a downside for the patient, and it is the noise of the modern scanners can reach a peak sound of 125.7 to 130.7 dB, with an average between 110 to 115 dB. This sound level can result in tinnitus and noise-induced hearing loss. MRI scanners with a higher level of magnetism have a higher noise level. Also, the scanners generate low-frequency sounds, less than 1 kHz, which have less risk of hearing impairment than higher frequency sounds, higher than 4 kHz. In these cases, the suggestion is to wear earplugs to attenuate the sound. More Information click here.
