No

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am happy to hear you are considering the possibility of participating in a study on mild cognitive impairment. Assuredly, this is the basis for improved and better care tomorrow. Thank you for your consideration and hope you get to.

If the only intervention is having this RI at the beginning and the end of this study, there is really nothing to get worried about. Persons get multiple MRI's in a day and the long term consequences are almost zero. Feel safe to partake in this study.

Before every study is authorized, the ethics committee makes sure persons partaking are well protected. For sure this has been done and any remaining uncertainty would be addressed with you. We cannot carry out research in this modern era by exposing the healthy to harmful and unjustified procedures.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
