Webinar: MRI Safety: Complying with American College of Radiology (ACR), Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), The Joint Commission (TJC) & More

This educational activity is jointly provided by AXIS Medical Education and the North Carolina Healthcare Association

December 4, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This webinar will cover the revised CMS hospital CoPs on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) along with the Joint Commission MRI requirements. Our speaker will review the American College of Radiology (ACR) guidance documentation on (Medical Radiology) MR safe practices and the many potential risks and reports of adverse incidents associated with MRI. The presentation will also include a discussion on the diagnostic imaging standards related to MRI standards by the Joint Commission (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. It will discuss 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.


    • At the conclusion of this session, the participants will be able to:

    • Discuss the Joint Commission issued sentinel event alert on preventing accidents and injuries in the MRI suite.
    • Describe the recommendation to improve MRI safety including having established policies and procedures for identifying implants in patients.
    • Discuss the American College of Radiology documentation on safety Medical Radiology (MR) practice.
    • Discuss the CMS and TJC standards that hospitals should follow regarding MRI safety.
