Day 5 of MR Safety week 26 July 2019
MR safety week commences on the 18th anniversary of the tragic accident at Westchester County Medical Centre, New York, where 6 year old Michael Columbini was struck and killed by a magnetic oxygen cylinder when it was mistakenly taken into the MRI scan room.
During MR safety week we will be publishing features and links on the website to support the professional development of Radiographers in MRI and promote best practice and excellence in MRI safety.
