MRI SAFETY COURSES


Frank G. Shellock, Ph.D. internationally respected MRI safety researcher and educator, has developed this series of educational programs on the vital topic of MRI safety. Theses courses are each designed to address the needs of staff with specific roles in the MRI department and throughout the hospital or imaging center. Through these courses, he provides relevant safety training for the entire range of healthcare facility personnel for hospitals and imaging centers that provide MRI services. To maintain patient and staff safety, and meet the American College of Radiology and Joint Commission guidelines, all staff should receive annual training in MRI safety.

Because of the apparent growing incidence of accidents that occur in the MRI setting, it is vital to provide MRI safety training to MRI technologists, radiologists, and other healthcare professionals involved with MRI technology in order to reduce the number of serious problems that occur in the MRI environment.

Of further note is that MRI facilities must be prepared for the revised requirements from the Joint Commission for Diagnostic Imaging Services, which went into effect in July 2015. As part of the new requirements, the facility must document that MRI technologists who perform magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations participate in ongoing education that includes annual training on safe MRI practices in the MRI environment.
