I am sorry for the confusion. I did not mean to imply that MRI "gave off"
gamma radiation. The information that I have collected in my research
shows that when the magnetic field is applied to the body it will cause the
water molecules in the body to reach an excited state. This excited state
will cause the water molecules to all face the same direction. The
positive and negative poles of the water molecule will align themselves
with the magnetic field of the MRI. When the magnetic field is turned off,
the water molecules will return to the relaxed state, resulting in the
production of gamma radiation. The body is the source of the gamma
