In the United States, a woman received a gunshot wound during an MRI.
Metro writes about it.
In June, a 57-year-old Wisconsin woman took a loaded pistol into her office. The weapon was attracted by a magnet when the device was turned on. As a result, the gun shot the patient in the buttocks, according to records from the Food and Drug Administration.
A report on problems with the use of the devices, presented by the woman's insurance company in July, stated: "The patient was brought to a magnetic room with a hidden iron gun. In the process of entering the channel, the barrel of the pistol was attracted to the magnet and fired a single shot. The victim received a gunshot wound to the right buttock. The patient was examined by an on-site physician who described the inlet and outlet openings as very small and superficial, penetrating only the subcutaneous tissue."

It is unclear how the woman managed to bring the gun to the scanner, as she underwent a routine inspection for the presence of metal objects and confirmed that she did not have anything like this with her.
After the incident, she was taken to the hospital and later reported that she had recovered, the report said.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of scan that uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body. An MRI scanner is a large tube containing powerful magnets that you lie inside during the scan. Patients must remove all metal from their bodies, and everything that enters the ward is carefully monitored, because otherwise the giant magnet can attract objects.
Recall that a woman with skin "like the wings of a butterfly" frankly spoke about her fatal illness. Every morning she wakes up in bubbles so strong that they stick to the sheets.
