The course explains the most current American College of Radiology Guidelines and the alignment with the Joint Commission Sentinel Alert. The course also defines healthcare roles as recommended by the ACR for each facility. Within this course the three main magnetic fields: static, gradient, and radio frequency will be defined and discussed within the context as it relates to patient and personnel safety. An explanation as determined by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) for labeling of implants and devices will be defined and how testing is conducted will be explained.
