MRI Safety Update and Innovations Day

The MRI Safety Update and Innovations Day will be held on Saturday, September 17, 2022 at The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.

A truly exceptional line up of presenters has been brought together by MRI Safety Matters to provide an educational event that will be both inspiring and enjoyable. This “live” meeting (optional virtual meeting) will be eagerly anticipated by MR radiographers, radiologists, MR physicists and associated MRI staff members. The MRI Safety Update and Innovations Day will see the return to the UK by Dr Frank G Shellock, creator of the internationally popular website www.mrisafety.com and director of MRI safety at the Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California. Dr Shellock will discuss how to scan patients with new or unusual implants and the safety considerations when scanning patients using very high (7T) and ultra-low (0.064T) field MR systems. The latest edition of Dr Shellock’s hardbound, 1,000+ page textbook, MRI Bioeffects, Safety, and Patient Management will be generously donated to the first 100 departments who have a registrant attending the meeting in person. What’s new in MR contrast media will also be discussed by leading experts in the field including the new macrocyclic gadolinium-based contrast agent, Gadoplicenol. The safety considerations of static, time-varying gradient, and radiofrequency electromagnetic fields plus methods to reduce specific absorption rate (SAR) values will be explained by Professor Martin Graves, co-author of several books including the award-winning MRI: from Picture to Proton. Professor Graves will also provide an introduction to Artificial Intelligence and explain what Deep Learning means. A Question and Answer panel involving all of the speakers will close the session, before a social reception, with complimentary drinks, from 5pm to 7pm. With more speakers and content yet to be announced, this MRI Safety Update and Innovations Day will be very popular, so it is highly recommended to register soon.
