|Program Summary: This 28-minute program provides an overview of MRI safety information for nonclinical staff members who regularly work in the MRI environment or who may occasionally work in this area as part of their responsibilities. Anyone who enters the MRI environment, even infrequently, must be properly trained to ensure their safety and the safety of patients and other facility staff. Dr. Shellock presents information pertaining to how MRI technology works, specific instructions regarding ensuring safety by restricting certain items from being brought into the MRI environment, and reviews the consequences when precautions are not properly followed. This program reviews fundamental MRI safety protocols and meets training recommendations set by the American College of Radiology and the requirements of the Joint Commission. This course may also be used in conjunction with in-house safety training as an annual review or refresher course for clinical personnel, non-clinical personnel, and others who have completed the more comprehensive program, Basic MRI Safety Training Program To Prevent Accidents and Injuries.
Internationally respected, MRI safety researcher and educator, Frank G. Shellock, PhD, developed this program at the request of many facilities in need of safety training for nonclinical personnel. This program has been adapted in this briefer version from the comprehensive, 50-minute program that is available for MRI healthcare personnel, Basic MRI Safety Training Program To Prevent Accidents and Injuries
