In an effort to provide Physicians, Technologists, and other course attendees with current information and data to make informed decisions in their clinical settings, this symposium covers several objectives. These include teaching and reviewing the basic principles underlying the potential areas of safety concern involved in the MR imaging process and magnetic resonance environment. In addition, defining the thought process algorithms for assessing whether a patient/device/implant/ foreign object can safely undergo MR imaging, and familiarizing the attendee with medico-legal considerations associated with MR safety.

Emanuel Kanal, MD, FACR, FISMRM, MRMD/SE, AANG

Director, Magnetic Resonance Services Professor of Radiology and Neuroradiology

Dr. Kanal has been involved in researching and teaching the world about magnetic resonance (MR) safety issues for more than 30 years, since the introduction of MRI as a clinical diagnostic tool. Having chaired the first magnetic resonance safety committee ever created, he also chaired numerous other MR safety committees and has been continually involved in and/or leading MR safety initiatives ever since. These include, among others, having chaired the MR Safety Committee for the American College of Radiology from its inception in 2001 until the summer of 2012, being awarded fellowship in the American College of Radiology as well as the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, and being named a Special Government Employee to the Food and Drug Administration on MR safety issues for both the Division of Medical Imaging and Hematology Products/Drug Safety group (of the Office of Surveillance and Epidemiology) regarding magnetic resonance contrast agents as well as the FDA Center for Devices and Radiological Health regarding all matters relating to magnetic resonance safety.

This CME activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the providership of The Northwest Imaging Forums, Inc. (NWIF). The Northwest Imaging Forums, Inc. is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The Northwest Imaging Forums, Inc. designates this live activity for a maximum of 24 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Nurses may claim credit for activities approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™ in most states, for up to 50% of the nursing requirement for recertification. This activity is designated for up to 24.0 AMA PRA Category1 Credits ™.

This MRI program has been submitted for approval of 24 hours of category A CE technologist credit as designated by The Society for MR Radiographers & Technologists (SMRT) RCEEM. ARRT regulations state that an individual may not repeat a live activity for credit if it was reported in the same or any subsequent biennium. To receive the maximum amount of credit hours, you must attend all sessions. Verification of attendance policies will be in place for each lecture. This meeting has applied to CAMPEP for approval of 24 MPCEC (Medical Physics Continuing Education Credit) hours.
