* Advanced MRI Safety Training For Healthcare Professionals:
Level 2 MR Personnel - Updated Edition
Released: April 05, 2017 Expires: April 30, 2020 CE credits: 2.5 Cost: $50.00
Faculty: Frank G. Shellock, PhD, FACC, FACR, FACSM
16626

This program reviews fundamental MRI safety protocols and meets the annual training recommendations from the American College of Radiology. Importantly, MRI facilities must now comply with the revised requirements for diagnostic imaging from The Joint Commission and document that MRI technologists participate in ongoing education that includes annual training on safe MRI practices in the MRI environment. As such, Advanced MRI Safety Training for Healthcare Professionals, Level 2 MR Personnel covers each MRI safety topic specified by The Joint Commission, as well as many additional subjects that will expand the knowledge-base of healthcare professionals.

With more than 30 years of experience in the field of MRI, the author of the best-selling textbook series, the Reference Manual for Magnetic Resonance Safety, Implants and Devices, and the creator of the internationally popular website, www.MRIsafety.com, Dr. Frank G. Shellock is uniquely qualified to present the information in this program.

Advanced MRI Safety Training for Healthcare Professionals, Level 2 MR Personnel is a 150-minute program that is divided into three sections.

Educational Objectives

  • Understand the safety issues related to MRI.
  • Describe the bioeffects associated with the static magnetic field, time-varying magnetic, and radiofrequency fields.
  • Present guidelines that prevent projectile-related accdents.
  • Describe polices that avoid issues related to acoustic noise.
  • Review procedures that prevent burns associated with MRI.
  • Explain and demonstrate appropriate pre-MRI screening procedures.
  • Identify techniques to manage patients with claustrophobia, anxiety, or emotional distress.
  • Describe guidelines to handle medical emergencies in the MRI setting.
  • Identify safety considerations for gadolinium-based contrast agents.

This is a Pay-To-View program. Purchase is required for full program access.

Anyone who enters the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) environment, whether on a regular or infrequent basis, must be properly trained to ensure their safety, the protection of patients, and the security of other facility staff members. This program, Basic MRI Safety Training, Level 1 MR Personnel accomplishes the initial training that is necessary to ensure safety in the unique setting associated with the MRI system. It includes information pertaining to MRI technology, describes common hazards and unique dangers associated with the MRI setting, and presents vital recommendations and guidelines to prevent accidents and injuries. Importantly, this program provides the fundamental MRI safety information for Level I MR Personnel recommended by the American College of Radiology and may be utilized by individuals desiring preparation for safety training as, Level 2 MR Personnel.

With more than 30 years of experience in the field of MRI, the author of the best-selling textbook series, the Reference Manual for Magnetic Resonance Safety, Implants and Devices, and the creator of the internationally popular website, www.MRIsafety.com, Dr. Frank G. Shellock is uniquely qualified to present the information in this program.

Educational Objectives

  • Appreciate the importance of MRI
  • Identify the hazards associated with MRI
  • Understand the screening process
  • Describe steps to prevent accidents and injuries

A Multimodality Approach to Imaging the Mediastinum and Pleura: Pearls and Pitfalls
Released: March 01, 2020 Expires: February 28, 2022 CE credits: 1.0 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Applied Radiology

Leonid Roshkovan, MD; Sharyn I. Katz, MD, MTR

Diagnostic interpretation of cross-sectional imaging of the mediastinum and pleura presents unique and significant challenges even to the experienced radiologist. The mediastinum is anatomically complex, comprising numerous structures ar-ranged into multiple anatomic compartments that can give rise to a wide range of pathologies. The pleural space is thin and multi-planar, which can confound evaluation and quantification of pleural abnormalities.

In this article, we will review imaging approaches to the mediastinum and pleura and present imaging pearls and pitfalls that can assist radiologic interpretation. This will include common masses that present in routine imaging of the chest and key imaging features that help to distinguish them using CT, MRI and FDG-PET/CT.

The knowledge of common mediastinal and pleural pa-thologies present on cross-sectional imaging will enable the radiologist to make informed diagnostic radiologic interpreta-tions and guide appropriate intervention and surveillance.

Advances in MR and CT Imaging: Emphasis on Artificial Intelligence:
RSNA 2019 Archived Program
Released: January 01, 2020 Expires: January 01, 2022 CE credits: 1.0 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Mathias Prokop, MD, Ph.D. | Garry E. Gold, MD

RSNA 2019 Archived Program

This Expert Forum Symposium features two respected radiologists who share their clinical experience applying advanced artificial intelligence techniques in both MR and CT imaging.

MR and CT imaging are advancing at a rapid rate with new scanner and software technology finding its way into advanced imaging scanners each year. Artificial Intelligence is proving to play a major role in this expansion. In this one-hour accredited CME symposium, Dr. Gold and Dr. Prokop will provide insight into how they are putting new AI tools into everyday practice at their facilities and explain how these tools are providing better patient care and throughput. Following the presentations, the faculty will take question from the audience.

Advances in CT Imaging
Presented by: Mathias Prokop, MD

Advances in MSK MR Imaging
Presented by: Garry E. Gold, MD

Educational Objectives

At the completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Practice two new novel approaches for advanced joint imaging with MR
  2. Describe the clinical value of deep learning reconstruction techniques in CT
  3. Discuss and implement Artificial Intelligence into clinical practice today

This program was originally presented live at RSNA 2019 and sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Medical Education (IAME) and supported through an unrestricted educational grant from Canon Medical Systems.

Hand Masses: An Essential MRI Review
Released: May 01, 2019 Expires: April 30, 2021 CE credits: 1.0 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Applied Radiology

Nicholas Hardin, DO; Shaked Laks, MD; Carola Mullins, MD; Osvaldo Padilla, MD; Lisa Kafchinski, MD; and Crysela Smith, MD

Hand masses are commonly encountered entities that often cause clinical and diagnostic dilemmas due to their nonspecific clinical presentation and overlapping imaging findings. This article systematically reviews the most commonly encountered hand masses in clinical practice in order to help the radiologist gain a structured diagnostic approach and familiarity with typical clinical presentations. Furthermore, this review will strengthen the radiologist’s ability to recognize pertinent MR imaging findings and gain knowledge of the underlying pathology on a cellular level.
