While on a journey of physical and spiritual healing, a brilliant neurosurgeon is drawn into the world of the mystic arts.
Screenwriter C. Robert Cargill said that the dialogue in an early scene between Doctor Strange and The Ancient One was inspired by debates on religion between himself and a former roommate.
The Ancient One:
Master Kaecilius. That ritual will bring you only sorrow.
The MRI scan would not have happened if there was a bullet in the brain. Consequence of doing an MRI scan would mean the patient would have died due to the magnet and its strength. A CT scan would have sufficed.
Actually a CT would not show the brain stem (the area the bullet is located). So the only chance saving the patients life (with time being of the essence) IS the MRI - hoping the bullet is not magnetic (for example titanium).
Most modern bullets in production today are copper jacked lead or just lead. While steel core copper jacketed bullets are available, they are uncommon.
Copper and lead are both non-magnetic so this would not present a problem.
SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: Dr Strange meets Thor and offers to help him locate his father. This is in fact an alternate version of the same scene from Thor: Ragnarok (2017).
