MRI Safety is a single course presented in two sections. This course is designed to provide the learner with a more in- depth understanding of the importance of safety in and around the MRI environment. In addition to learning about the risks associated with MRI and methods employed to minimize these risks, the learner will also develop an understanding of the risk assessment process that is used to identify and mitigate the risks.
The MRI Safety course is presented in two sections. Both sections must be completed in order to earn the CE credits available. There is one post-test at the end of the two sections to evaluate learning to award CE credits.
Some of the topics covered in the MRI Safety Course are: Risks associated with the magnet, radiofrequencies, quenches, SAR levels, foreign bodies and contrast media, risk assessment processes, government agencies and the role they play in safety, and the employee/employer role in MRI safety.
Each section lists objectives that will be covered in the module. This course offers interactive learning along with graphics and animations to help the learner understand the material presented.
