Video Excerpt From Dr. Kanal’s AHRA MR Safety Presentation

As mentioned in an earlier post, noted MR safety guru Dr. Emanuel Kanal gave a brilliant presentation at the 2008 annual meeting of the American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA). While his session, “MR Safety Update, 2008” addressed several different MR safety issues, below is a video excerpt, which marries the audio recording with his presentation slides, showing information on ferromagnetic detection that Dr. Kanal presented.


Among the ACR Guidance Document on Safe MR Practices: 2007, the recent Joint Commission Sentinel Event Alert #38 on MRI Accidents and Injuries, and other standards and expert recommendations, it is abundantly clear that ferromagnetic detection is a potent part of an effective MR screening program.
