Brief Answer:
MRI is absolutely safe, don't worry!

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting HealthcareMagic!

I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.

MRI does not use any ionizing radiation as in X-ray or CT-scan. MRI used magnetic fields to create digital images of internal structures.

So, you can take as many MRI as your doctor may feel the need be.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
Thanks
