MRI Safety: Complying ACR, CMS, TJC and More (Webinar T6112)
Thu, Dec 5, 2019
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Speaker: Sue Dill Calloway
Date/Time: Thursday, December 5 / 10 a.m. - Noon
This webinar will cover the revised CMS hospital CoPs on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) along with the Joint Commission (TJC) MRI requirements. Our speaker will review the American College of Radiology (ACR) guidance documentation on Medical Radiology (MR) safe practices, the many potential risks and reports of adverse incidents associated with MRI. She will also include discussion on the diagnostic imaging standards related to MRI standards by TJC. These standards require the hospital to orient the technologist performing the MRI and to provide ongoing education in many areas. This includes positioning to prevent thermal injuries, reduce risk for nephrogenic system fibrosis, ferromagnetic items, safe equipment, screening for medical implants and more.
Additionally, our speaker will review the American College of Radiology guidelines and safety concerns to make your MRI environment safer. This is a-must attend program for any facility that does MRI. This program is also important in light of four recent MRI incidents in US hospitals.
