In 2020, the "ACR Manual on MR Safety" was published 19 years after the tragic incident which resulted in the death of 6 year-old Michael Colombini. In the preceding years, MR safety-related incidents reported to the FDA increased at a rate approximately 5 times greater than the increase in the number of MR studies performed. The ACR has established "de facto industry standards" through it's guidelines and now their Manual on MR Safety.  In 2014, the American Board of Magnetic Resonance Safety was established to provide credentialing for "the individuals who are charged with ensuring safety in clinical and research MR suites."  Management of MR safety has been well defined and established.  This presentation will address these standards and practices to ensure the safe execution of MR procedures.

    •  Discuss the ACR Manual on MR Safety 2020 and the roles along with the responsibilities
