Abstract

The present invention includes a toy for child undergoing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. The toy includes conducting components. When the conducting components of the toy move across the flux lines of magnetic field in the MRI scanner, eddy currents are induced. Eddy currents generate Lorentz force in conducting component of toy acting against direction of movement. Such resistance provides an exciting experience for the child in the MRI scanner bore space and helps calm the child`s apprehension about scanning.
