I believe the antidepressant effect of MRI was first noted serendipitously by doctors at McLean / Harvard while they were using a portable scanner to perform brain images. Last I heard, they were studying the phenomenon. Of course, there is some precedence for the use of magnetic fields to treat affective disorders, as rTMS (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation) has been approved by the FDA for these purposes.
