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.
This 1.5 hour comprehensive course is designed for physicians, technologists, as well as ancillary medical staff. 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.
This course is designed for medical professionals who do not routinely work within the MR Environment.
- Annual review or refresher course for clinical and non-clinical personnel
- May be used with in-house safety training
- Post-test and certificate
- Ideal for non-clinical staff
This 1 hour comprehensive course designed for Level 1 personnel covers:
- Understanding MRI technology
- Hazards and dangers within the MRI environment
- Procedures for safe patient management
- Guidelines and recommendations to prevent accidents and injuries
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.
