The potential hazards related to the 3 different electromagnetic fields used in MR (the static magnetic field, the switched gradient field and RF field) will be presented and experienced in practical sessions. Another important aspect are the standards of MR Safety and compatibility testing in active as well as non-active implants, with a focus on a training in clinical strategies how to handle implant safety issues in the MR environment, enhance patients safety and improve the MR workflow in daily routine. Special aspects such as cardio-vascular implants and MR Safety issues in interventional MR will be presented, too. The most recent developments and risks of Gadodolinium-based MR contrast agents will be covered. Additionally an introduction to risk management in clinical MR systems will be given. The course will provide a combination of lectures and practical training sessions in smaller groups.
