5 Gauss Fringe Field
 
This line specifies the perimeter around a MR scanner within which the static magnetic fields are higher than five gauss. Five gauss and below are considered 'safe' levels of static magnetic field exposure for the general public.
Due to the physical properties of magnetic fields, the magnetic flux, which penetrates the useful volume of the magnet will return through the surroundings of the magnet to form closed field lines. Depending on the magnet construction, the returning flux will penetrate large open spaces (unshielded magnets) or will be confined largely to iron yokes or through secondary coils (shielded magnets).

5 Gauss LimitMRI Resource Directory:
 - Safety -
 
The national regulatory boards decided to limit the threshold for access to MRI areas to 5 gauss.


MRI Safety Guidance
It is of special interest for the observer of bureaucratic procedures that the 5 gauss safety limit is ten times higher than the average earth magnetic field, but lower than the magnetic field in electric trains such as subways (up to 7 gauss). For example, the fields measured on the surface of the receiver of a telephone are 35 gauss and of an audio headset 100 gauss.

5 Gauss Line
 
This line specifies the perimeter around a MR scanner within which the static magnetic fields are higher than five gauss. Five gauss and below are considered 'safe' levels of static magnetic field exposure for the general public.
Portable devices requiring a separation distance between the device and the MR magnet, should not be considered 'MR Safe', 'MR Compatible', or intended for use in the MR environment. Typically the 5 gauss line is the only location where the static magnetic field strength is specified around a MR scanner. Therefore, labeling specifying a separation distance between the MR magnet and the device to ensure safe or proper operation of the device should be avoided.

In 2075 (after about 100 years of ...) the MRI scan will be :
obsolete 
done with handheld probe 
done at home (app, ...) 
a 3 second walk through 
daily done 
replaced by something much ...
