Overview

The field of MRI continues to evolve. As more magnets become available, and with the increasing use of higher field strengths, MR safety awareness becomes of paramount importance for MRI technologist, radiologist, patients, and personnel working in the MRI environment. It is crucial that technologists and other radiology staff receive the latest updates and education in MRI technology, not only to maintain their national license requirements but to be able to provide the best care to our patients. The only way to accomplish this goal is to provide an annual CME-type course where we select leaders in the field of MRI to discuss the changes in MRI and how these changes impact the delivery of health care.

  1. Restate basic knowledge of underlying principles of MRI.
  2. Define and apply the increasing role of MRI in imaging the bowel.
  3. Define and apply the increasing role of cardiac MRI in clinical practice.
  4. Discuss newer applications that widen the scope of clinical MRI including “fast” imaging.
