All users of the MRI equipment in the ALBMC are required to have MRI safety training completed here at the Brain Mapping Center.
Your lab must have one of the following:
Safety training is a 3 step process and typically takes 2-3 weeks to complete.
After studying the ALBMC MRI Safety Manual online, you will come to the Brain Mapping Center for a 1.5 hour session in which you will watch a 1 hour MRI Safety DVD which will be followed by a quiz.

After passing the MRI Safety quiz, you will be scheduled for a scanner orientation session that will include reviewing MRI Safety issues in the MRI environment AND some basic MRI equipment operation.
After your MRI Scanner Orientation is completed you will then schedule a “Final Safety Walk-through” with one of our Faculty members (contact information for scheduling the walk-through will be given out at the completion of the MRI Scanner session).
This is typically a 15 minute Question and Answer session in which you will be asked questions relevant to MRI safety.
Once a year (on or before the anniversary of your MRI Safety Certification date) you will need to recertify. This is done online via the Brain Mapping Database.
