Magnetic Resonance Imaging Safety

Imaging Sciences students have potential access to the MRI environment. As such, students must be appropriately screened for magnetic wave or radiofrequency hazards. Students are provided with MRI Hazards/Risks and Safety Practices information and required to complete a South College MRI Screening Questionnaire prior to entering the clinical setting. Any student who answers “YES” to any question on the South College MRI Screening Questionnaire will not be permitted to enter the MRI environment. Students may be required to undergo additional safety education/training and screening procedures per clinical affiliate policies and procedures.
