MRI Safety Workshop
MRI Safety Images
Location: Online   |   Register Today (Limited Availability)
This LIVE webinar provides an overview of MR imaging safety that is geared toward the practicing MR Radiologists, Radiology Residents, other Physicians & Physicists who supervise MRI Exams. It is crucial for radiologists to understand the safety risks and how to mitigate them in order to protect themselves, their colleagues, and their patients. The training content is based on accepted safety standards of care and is supported by the 2020 ACR Manual on MR Safety.
“The Radiologist supervising the MR exam and the MR staff is responsible for the safe execution of the exam. Final determination of whether or not to scan a patient is to be made by the level 2 MR physician responsible for the patient, or the MRMD. These risks may include, among others, patient positioning; contrast reactions; consideration of mechanical, thermal, and functional risks associated with MRI of implants; and assessments of the safety of exposure of the device to the electromagnetic forces used in the MRI process.” 
2020 ACR Manual on MR Safety p.18
