Abstract

Purpose: To determine energy exposure and temperature changes in routine magnetic resonance imaging practice. Materials and Methods: Body core and skin temperatures were compared in 155 persons (143 patients, 12 volunteers) undergoing routine magnetic resonance examinations with a 1.5 T field- strength magnetic resonance tomography unit using a fluoroptic temperature measurement system. Results: Average applied energy was 0.3 W/kg for whole body and 1.92 W/kg for spatially localized SAR. The maximum whole-body SAR was 1.43 W/kg spatially localized. Body core temperatures differed from those of the control group by a median 0.1 °C and only a few patients (16.8%) exceeded the limit (± 0.5%) at which regulatory mechanisms set in. All patients remained within the normal physiological circadian temperature range (± 1 °C). Skin temperature rose a median 0.49 °C, with a maximal increase of 5.31 °C, which may be considered to be within the limits of physiological temperature change. Conclusion: Clinically relevant warning of the body is unlikely in routine magnetic resonance imaging practice.
