Due to the insufficient experimental data on static magnetic field exposure and new ICNIRP limitations an exposure measurement instrument was developed. With the new probe actual B0 and time varying magnetic fields due to movement in the stray field can be detected simultaneously. Therefore, personal exposure of 10 healthcare workers and MR physicists during normal operating procedures could be determined. Peak exposure limits are exceeded during all procedures.
