Prior to beginning the clinical component of the MRI program, the student must have a basic understanding of the unique hazards associated with MRI procedures. Safety precautions related to the magnetic field, a magnet quench, cryogen use, fire, the pregnant patient, and medical emergencies are emphasized. The care of the patient before and during the performance of an MRI procedure is also addressed in this unit of study. Patient education, preparation, and interview techniques are learned. Patient care and comfort situations unique to MRI, such as claustrophobia, acoustic noise and positioning for motionless scanning are detailed.
