[IP] MRIs etc

Do NOT wear a pump during an MRI, CT scan or other x-ray procedure.  This 
advice is given by all pump manufacturers.  A previous exposure without 
apparent harm is no guarantee for the future. The issue is not only damage 
to the pump, but the real risk that  damage can cause the pump to 
malfunction, resulting in an over-delivery of insulin.  That scenario has 
been implicated in at least one death.  See the warning at IP  on this subject:
