The MRI scanner does not use radiation, has no known side effects or risks and is considered safe for both children and adults.
You should not have any metal objects on your body (earrings, watches, etc), as the MRI produces powerful magnetic forces which attracts iron-containing objects, which may cause them to move suddenly and fly through the air toward the centre of the magnet.
