The program has established a safety screening protocol for students having potential access to the magnetic resonance environment. All students are required to watch a MRI safety video as part of their clinical orientation requirements. Students requesting a rotation through Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) must also complete a MRI Safety Screening Sheet to assure they are appropriately screened for magnetic waves or radiofrequency hazards. If a student has had an injury to the eye involving a metallic object or fragment, they will be responsible for the cost of MRI orbits images prior to the rotation.
