Over the past 30 years, MRI has become a major diagnostic imaging modality.  Improvements in technology have resulted in faster imaging sequences and clinical systems with field strengths of up to 3 Tesla.   Unfortunately, the number of reported safety incidents has increased significantly. MR safety training for technologists and radiologists is often not done and controlled access into this dangerous environment is either not well established if at all. In 2002 the ACR first published it’s guidance document on MR safety and it rapidly came to be considered the de-facto industry standard for MR safety.  It was been revised several times with the most recent revision in 2013. This course covers all major aspects of the most current information on MR Safety

Classes begin at 8:30 am and are over by 5:30 pm (Eastern) each day.
