MRI Safety: 10 Tips for Best Practices
The topic of MRI safety is increasing in prominence among our clients at Apex Physics Partners. The increased focus by The Joint Commission (“TJC”) and the American College of Radiology (“ACR”) have pushed the issue of MRI safety to the forefront. Given the headlines around MRI safety to date, the ACR convened several panels of experts to decide on best practices in MRI safety, most recently in 2013. At Apex, we have taken those best practices, combined with our experience in testing and training at over 125 MRI sites, to highlight our 10 most important tips with respect to making your MRI facility safer.
