AbstractReviews and evaluates over 550 studies in an effort to determine the effects on humans and other biological systems of exposure to static magnetic fields and to time-varying fields at extremely low frequencies. Apart from providing an overview of all documented biological effects, the book also identifies areas for further research and offers guidance for the prevention of health hazards in both the general population and specific occupations. The opening sections provide details on sources of exposure from natural magnetic fields and from man-made fields and examine data on biological effects on animals and man. The book concludes with guidance on health effects assessment, recommended exposure standards and their rationales, and suggested protective measures, including techniques that can minimize needless exposure to high intensity magnetic fields around large research facilities

Hiari, Asem; Nawaiseh, Bassam; Jaber, Hesham (1998)A retrospective analysis of 600 [238 females, 362 males] spine examinations was carried out. Vertebral haemangioma was observed in 160 patients [27%], 74 females [31%] and 86 males [24%]. The majority were over 35 years. The most frequent site was the lumbar region, 64 patients [40%], then the thoracic region, 32 patients [20%], cervical region, 26 patients [16%], predominantly in the dense complex of the axis, and 38 patients [24%] were found to have multiple haemangiomas. Characteristically all vertebral haemangiomas abutted or included the ...
Effect of pre-instruction on anxiety levels of patients undergoing magnetic resonance imaging examination Selim, M.A. (2001)This study investigated differences in anxiety level of patients who received instruction prior to magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] compared to a control group that did not. Thus, 60 patients were randomly assigned to two groups. Patients in the study group received instructions designed by the researcher plus the routine hospital instructions, while the control group received the routine hospital instructions only. The State-Trait Anxiety Inventory was administered to both groups before and after MRI examination. Patients who received the designed ...
