The Institute for Magnetic Resonance Safety, Education, and Research (IMRSER) was formed in response to the growing need for information and research on matters pertaining to magnetic resonance (MR) safety. The IMRSER is the first independent, multidisciplinary, professional organization devoted to promoting awareness, understanding, and communication of MR safety issues through education and research.
To promote awareness and understanding of MR safety,
To disseminate information regarding current and emerging MR safety issues,
To develop and provide materials and resources to facilitate MR safety-related education and training,
To respond to critical MR safety issues with a sense of urgency, and
To advance the field of MR safety through support of scientific research.
Functions and activities of the IMRSER include development of up-to-date MR safety materials and dissemination of this information to the MR community. This is accomplished predominantly through the efforts of the Advisory Boards.
Members of the Advisory Boards of the Institute for Magnetic Resonance Safety, Education, and Research (IMRSER) are charged with creating recommendations, guidelines, position papers, and educational materials pertaining to existing or emerging MR safety issues.
This is achieved by utilizing the pertinent peer-reviewed literature and by relying on each members extensive clinical, research, or other appropriate experience. Notably, documents developed by the IMRSER incorporate MR safety guidelines and recommendations created by the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), the American College of Radiology (ACR), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), the Medical Devices Agency (MDA), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and other similar organizations.
The IMRSERs rigorous development and review process for MR safety documents ensures that authoritative and relevant information is produced in a timely manner for rapid dissemination to the MR community. The MR safety information is provided to MR healthcare professionals and others as hard copy and electronic publications. Additionally, this information is posted on the IMRSER web site as well as on www.MRIsafety.com (currently with over 92,000 registered users).
The Institute for Magnetic Resonance Safety, Education, and Research permits all members of the MR community to use the MRI Safety Guidelines posted on this web site. Please be sure to read and understand our disclaimer.
