    Hi, I really enjoy your blog. I am presenting a mr safety power point show here at Vanderbilt and would like to know where you get your video clips? I’d like to include some in my presentation for educational purposes. Not sure how to do that with Quicktime movies but I see where you have a download option on some. I sure would appreciate your help and thank you.

    I collect my pictures and videos from all over. Some I have permission from the originator to use, and many are put out on the internet with no assertion of ownership. If you have specific ones in mind, please let me know and I’ll be happy to share them with you if I’m permitted to do so (and if not, I’ll try and put you in touch with the people who can give you the permission to use them).

    Hi Tobias. I’m a radiologist and I’m going to be giving a talk to neurosurgeons in China covering basic MRI physics and safety. I’m interested in using a couple of your images for emphasis… specifically, your graph showing the incidence of increasing MRI accidents relative to procedure growth volume, as well as the iconic image on your site of the patient’s bed protruding from the MRI scanner. Thanks for your help.

    I’m sorry to have taken a while to get back with you. In general, if you wish to use any of the materials from this site for non-commercial educational purposes, you are free to do so with attribution, as stated above. Commercial uses, or mass-media reproduction are subject to my approval.

    If your talk is without remuneration (other than for your direct expenses), I think it falls squarely within the free use with attribution category.
