Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Annual Safety Training . Emergency shutdown procedures: A loss in superconductivity can result in a massive heat gain in the magnet, producing cryogen boil-off and release. This is called a quench“ ”. The resulting damage is costly and time-consuming. Emergency quenching should be avoided.
