What machines can interfere with any of the devices, e.g. MRI with magnet?


#1

If I get an MRI scan is it possible that an implant can be pulled out?


#2

You can get an MRI with an x-series chip implanted, it’s MRI compatible. Check out our FAQ’s MRI section; https://forum.dangerousthings.com/t/x-series-implantable-transponder-faq/#faq-mri

That said, if you would like to remove the chip before getting the MRI, you can remove it easily; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNHazc43q_Q

Magnets I would remove completely before getting the MRI. Removal is also simple, but not as easy as removing an x-series transponder. Partly because of their shape, and partly because of where magnets are typically installed (fingertip).


#3

Is it possible a EMP(homemade or bought on eBay or Amazon)
can disable or disrupt any of the tags?


#4

Not likely. We hit the xNT with a giant EMP and it still worked afterward. The EMP was so strong it launched the xNT into the air (that’s why it’s contained in a plastic cup).


#5

How about a degaussing device? Or any other devices that can interfere or disable any of the implants.


#6

No sorry, I’m not aware of any.


#7

Thank you…If someone had one of these implants in them and got shock by a taser/stun gun, what will happen to the chip implant?


#8

Nothing. You are a big bag of salt water. The chips are encased in glass. The energy from an electric shock will travel through your salty tissue before it even bothers with the implant.


#9

Amal, does Dangerous Things also give a statement that it is save to go in the MRI scanner with a x-serie NFC chip?

I already got a statement from Tom (who chipped me), but the radiology department would not accept it. They told me they want a signed statement from the producer. Is that possible?


#10

Yep. Here you go.

Thank you, Amal! I hope they will accept it now


#12

Was that documentation sufficient? How did your MRI go?
