MRI Safety – Is All About Being Proactive in Practice

The main drive in MRI safety right now is improving the consistency of defined terms and accessibility to essential information. Single terminology, CLEAR LABELING, and more information are central to MRI being conducted more safely around the world.  

Commercially available accessories such as furniture, wheelchairs, instruments, O2 cylinders, etc. can be ferromagnetic or electrically conductive. Those are not designed, thus contraindicated to be used in the MR environment and several health injuries have been reported as a result of incorrect or unlabeled items. 3 symbols for device labeling recommended by the ASTM are in stock and available for online purchase. Don’t make a critical mistake by not having proper sticker labeling on ALL items in your MRI department.  

It is important to prioritize safety training within the department and ensure that your department is properly stocked with MR Safe or MR Conditional room accessories. Z&Z Medical carries a wide array of MRI products for your daily use. Visit our website today or email info@zzmedical.com with any questions that you may have.

MRI Accidents like this can be avoided!

Accidents like this should never happen! Injuries to Staff and Damage to Property can be avoided when the necessary safety measures are in place. It is critical to Update the Safety in Your MRI Facility and don't take for granted that all is ok with your written safety plan. According to a recent social media post, last week a prominent hospital in California had a major accident in the MRI Suite resulting in significant damage, and injury to staff.  The MRI tech was not in the room, MRI table was outside of the MRI room, Nurse and tech-aide brought patient into the MRI room on a non-safe MRI stretcher. Patient was thrown from the bed and the nurse incurred a broken femur and pelvis.

We all know that MRI uses a powerful magnetic field to produce detailed images of internal organs and structures of the body. While MRI is generally considered a safe procedure, it can pose significant risks to patients and staff if proper safety measures are not followed.  The accident above could have been prevented with the use of a safety device like TechGate from Z&Z Medical. 

TechGate is a device designed to prevent ferromagnetic objects from being brought into the MRI room. Ferromagnetic objects, such as oxygen cylinders, wheelchairs, and gurneys can be attracted to the strong magnetic field of the MRI machine and become dangerous projectiles like shown in the photo above. TechGate uses a series of sensors and alarms to detect the presence of ferromagnetic objects and prevent them from entering the MRI room.

MRI safety is essential for the well-being of patients and staff members. The use of safety devices like TechGate can help to prevent accidents and reduce the risk of injury. It is important for healthcare providers to prioritize MRI safety and ensure that all necessary precautions are taken to protect patients and staff members.

In addition to using safety devices like TechGate, healthcare providers should also follow best practices for MRI safety, such as screening patients for contraindications, ensuring that all staff members are properly trained on MRI safety, and following established protocols for MRI procedures.

MRI is a valuable diagnostic tool that has revolutionized medical imaging. By prioritizing MRI safety and using tools like TechGate, healthcare providers can ensure that patients and staff members can continue to benefit from this technology without unnecessary risks.
