Creating an MRI Program for the Emergency Department – The BNI Experience

Imaging Technology News Webinar Series – Supported by an educational grant from Philips Healthcare 

The purpose of this webinar is to outline how to structure an emergency department magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) program. It will describe how a program can be utilized to reduce the use of computed tomography (CT) to cut patient radiation dose exposure, discuss how to shorten MRI exam protocols and how to modify practices to meet the needs of the emergency department. The webinar is part of the Imaging Technology News Webinar Series and is supported by an educational grant from Philips Healthcare

Webinar Overview

Statement of Purpose/Need:
The purpose of this webinar is to outline how to structure an emergency department magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) program. It will describe how a program can be utilized to reduce the use of computed tomography (CT) to cut patient radiation dose exposure, discuss how to shorten MRI exam protocols and how to modify practices to meet the needs of the emergency department.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

• Describe how MRI can be a viable alternative to CT and reduce CT utilization to help eliminate some patient radiation dose.
• Define ordering guidelines for ED MRI exams.
• Discuss how protocols can be set to create exams that are shortened to 10 minutes or less.
• Outline how report turnaround times can be reduced to match CT in the ED.

Intended Audience:
This webinar is intended for Radiologists and emergency department physicians.
