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.

Faculty: Jon Jacobson, MD, Christine Chung, MD
17062
RSNA 2017 Archived Program

As new technological advances in Magnetic Resonance & Ultrasound continue to impact how healthcare professionals diagnose and treat sports related injuries; this program from RSNA 2017 features:

The Future of MR in MSK
by Dr. Christine Chung
Unique Ultrasound Solutions in MSK and Sports Medicine

by Dr. Jon Jacobson

Each provides insight into how these modalities are transforming patient care. Also included is a live USD scanning session with Dr. Jacobson, where he provides a detailed description of his scanning techniques.

Educational Objectives

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

  • Describe imaging techniques that can reduce scan time without decreasing image quality.
  • Describe how the infrastructure of MSK tissue provides a rationale for the development of a qualitative pulse sequence.
  • Be familiar with the normal appears of tendons under USD
  • Recognize the common MSK pathology seen on USD
  • Describe applications where dynamic USD is used in MSK imaging.

This program was originally presented live at RSNA 2017 and sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Medical Education (IAME) and supported through an unrestricted educational grant from Toshiba America Medical Systems (now Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc.).

The Role of Prostate MR in Detection & Management of Prostatic Neoplasia
Released: January 01, 2017 Expires: December 31, 2019 CE credits: 1.0 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Stephen J. Pomeranz, MD
16571

Prostate MRI can be an effective tool in preventive as well as diagnostic and ongoing patient care for patients with statistical likelihood and/or risk factors predisposing them to the diagnosis of prostatic neoplasia. Used efficiently, MR contributes to early detection, accurate staging and localization, and reduction in unnecessary biopsies and treatment.

Skilled reporting provides allied health professionals with critical results to serve patients optimally, allocate resources effectively and improve treatment and surgical outcomes for their patients. This Expert Forum webcast will include a series of case reviews that incorporate and elucidate these concepts.

Following Dr. Pomeranz's presentation questions from the audience were addressed in a moderated Q&A session.

Educational Objectives

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

  • Identify the clinical indications for effective utilization of MR of the prostate.
  • Be familiar with signal characteristics of prostate neoplasia on MRI, and understand the application of ACR standard PI-RADS scale to this type of imaging pathology.
  • Describe MRI's key role as a diagnostic tool for screening, active surveilance, staging, recurrence, identification, treatment planning and treatment response evaluation.

Supported through an unrestricted educational grant from Hitachi Medical Systems.
