Aim: In daily life, individuals are exposed to electromagnetic contamination at different levels. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a radiodiagnostic imaging technique using non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation. Considering possible adverse effects of magnetic fields may occur at long time, complications are difficult to determined earlier. Therefore, the effects of MRI on some biochemical parameters were evaluated before and after MRI. Material and Method: In the present study, applying for MRI and with no systemic disorders, total 40 volunteers between the ages of 25-45 were enrolled. Blood samples were investigated before and after MRI, and subjects were exposed to magnetic field of 1.5 T for 30 min. Blood samples were soon centrifuged and studied in terms of the levels of serum Ca, Fe, Fe binding, triglyceride, cholesterol, TT3, TT4, free T3, free T4, TSH, ferritin, insulin, lipase, HDL, LDL and glucose. Results: In the study, levels of Ca, cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL, TT3, Fe, Fe binding, lipase, TSH and insulin after MRI were found to be lower than those before the procedure. This change was observed to be statistically significant (P<0.05), and the difference related to levels of LDL, glucose, ferritin, Free T3, Free T and TT4 were found to be statistically insignificant. Discussion: It was concluded that some biochemical parameters ocur after MRI, and further studies are needed to evaluate longterm consequences and biological effects and whether the changes are temporary.
