None: Mri generally has no side effects, assuming an appropriate safety screening. Some implanted devices and tattoos are not MRI safe. Some persons are sensitive to the IV contrast that is sometimes used, and persons with poor kidney function sometimes cannot get IV contrast. During the scan, especially at high magnet strength, some persons describe "funny feelings".
