Our MR safety education programs are designed to meet the annual education requirements described by Accrediting Organizations (AOs) such as the ACR, IAC and The Joint Commission.

The non-MR personnel program is designed for non-MR staff. The Level 1 and Level 2 programs are designed specifically for the MR staff and MR radiologists.

The Joint Commission, American College of Radiology (ACR), Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) and some modalities, States and municipalities require annual safety training for Fluoroscopic Radiation, CT Dose Optimization and Reduction, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for Level I and Level II staff.

MR technologists should comply with the technologist qualifications listed in the ACR MRI.

There are 2 levels of MR Personnel, as described below:

Level 1 MR Personnel:
Individuals who have passed the facility’s MR safety educational requirements (as defined by the facility’s MRMD) to ensure that they would not constitute a danger to themselves or others in the MR environment will henceforth be referred to as Level 1 MR Personnel.

Level 2 MR Personnel:
Those who have been more extensively trained and educated in the broader aspects of MR safety issues, including but not limited to issues related to the potential for RF-related thermal loading or burns and direct neuromuscular excitation from rapidly changing gradients, will henceforth be referred to as Level 2 MR Personnel.

MR SCREENING

All Non-MR Personnel needing to enter Zone III must first pass an MR safety screening process. Before Non-MR Personnel enter Zone III, final authorization must originate from Level 2 MR Personnel.

Nonemergent patients should be MR safety screened at least twice prior to being granted access to the MR environment. At least 1 of these screens should be performed by Level 2 MR Personnel verbally and/or interactively. For example, the patient (or their health care proxy) may complete a screening form and subsequently have the responses and contents of that form reviewed together with a Level 2 MR Technologist.
