Scanner ban fears eased by vote

Controversial European rules which some specialists claimed were a threat to vital MRI scans have been put on hold.

The directive set limits on exposure to powerful electromagnetic fields - but doctors claimed they were so low using an MRI scanner could breach them.

The European Parliament has now voted to delay implementation for four years.

A spokesman for the Parliament said it was still unclear whether MRI would have been affected, and further research would be carried out.
