Research reports and evaluations

On this page you may find research reports and evaluations of the BfS on various topics related to static and low-frequency fields.

Do strong static magnetic fields have an impact on human health?

Individuals come in contact with strong static magnetic fields, for instance, during Magnetic Resonance Imaging, i.e. an imaging procedure used in medical diagnosis. Devices currently used in clinical practice are mostly operated at a magnetic flux density of 1.5 or 3 Tesla (T). In research, 7 and 11.7 Tesla-devices are already being tested which are intended to be used in medical diagnosis as well in the future.
