Abstract

During the last decade, radiation oncology departments have integrated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) equipment, procedures, and expertise into their practices. MRI safety is an important consideration because a large percentage of patients receiving radiation therapy have histories of multiple surgeries and implanted devices. However, MRI safety guidelines and workflows were traditionally designed for radiology departments. This report presents an MR safety program designed for a radiation oncology department to address its specific needs.
