* ''Series/KingdomHospital'' plays with the HauntedTechnology aspect in the episode "Butterfingers." Basically, Maine's most hated baseball player has just been admitted to Kingdom after a suicide attempt (gunshot to the head). After surgery, they want to put him in the MRI for additional testing, but [[CoolOldLady Mrs. Druse]] protests that it'll send him into [[{{Technobabble}} Swedenborgian space]], from which there is no (known) exit. Turns out she was right: the guy had a metal plate in his head, probably after being pelted with baseballs one too many times.

Has naught to do with GhostInTheMachine or GhostInTheShell. Not necessarily connected to DigitizedHacker, though the potential is there. Nothing to do with standardized testing either, or cats for that matter.

* A particularly dark RunningGag on Series/{{House}} is the MRT machine causing all kinds of violent reactions on the patients placed inside. Not surprisingly, a few episodes have this happening because the patient has some kind of mental imbalance (most probably because of the disease affecting him) which triggers when placed within the machine and makes him have a panic attack.

A stock element of horror and thriller media: As part of a medical examination, the protagonist is put in a CAT, PET or MRT scan tube. Cue the ominous loud sounds those machines make, and possibly some claustrophobia-induced nighmarish visions. Bonus points if the subject is already claustrophobic, paranoid or otherwise psychologically fragile. Extra bonus points if the tube turns out to malfunction in some hellish sort of way.
