Awaits the first pro-life and pro-life comments to come about. I give this thread five hours before such happens!

Really cool though.

I am sure it is safe... but it sounds scary ... how often do they bombard the fetus with magnetic waves and how strong are they... Maybe they will be born with the powers of Magneto and take over the world...

Diagnostic MRI's are usually done with a field strength of 0.1 to 3.0 Tesla. 1 Tesla = 10,000 Gauss, and the Earth's magnetic field is at most about 0.58 - 0.60 Gauss at the surface (~25 Gauss at Earth's core.)

The RF portion operates at up to 35kW peak and several tens of mHz. More power = faster scans.
