First Aired: Jan. 08, 2002 on NBC

Main Characters in this Episode
- Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Alex (MRI Girl) gets scared, she grabs J.D.'s hand and says that she is checking for a wedding ring. However, she checks his right hand, whereas wedding rings are always on the left hand. Also, regardless of that, anybody who comes near an MRI has to take off all jewelry and any other metallic objects.
- Goof (factual errors): SPOILER: Dr. Cox and Elliot are the only two people in the room performing CPR and defibrillation on the patient at the end. During a code, there are always many more people in the room -- a proper code requires at least 6 people (a team leader, one person managing the airway, one person performing chest compressions, one person performing defibrillation, one person pushing medications, and one person recording all events).
- Goof (factual errors): When J.D. is in the MRI room, the MRI is supposedly on, but it's not making any noise at all, and he's still wearing his pager, stethoscope, watch, etc. In actual fact, a doctor would not take any metal objects into a room with an MRI scanner.
- The MRI tech who pops up behind the window is played by Charles Papert, the camera operator on the show.
