American Board of Magnetic Resonance Safety Releases Examination Content Syllabus

AMBRS Examination Content Syllabus

On February 6, the AMERICAN BOARD OF MAGNETIC RESONANCE SAFETY (ABMRS) released its Examination Content Syllabus for its impending Magnetic Resonance Safety Certified™ (MRSC™) credentialing. The syllabus is designed to identify major topics of interest that are likely to be included on the ABMRS certification examination and is the same for all three certifications: Magnetic Resonance Medical Director/Physician (MRMD); Magnetic Resonance Safety Officer (MRSO) and Magnetic Resonance Safety Expert (MRSE). While the topics are the same for the three certifications, differences will arise from relative depth of knowledge required for various topics and the relative emphasis of the topics themselves within the examination.

If you are interested in learning more about the examinations and reviewing the ABMRS Examination Content Syllabus, please visit the ABMRS website CREDENTIALING and EXAMINATION CONTENT pages. If you have any questions or would like to discuss MRI safety or ABMRS credentialing, please contact Caryn Nolen at CNOLEN@NATIONALRAD.COM.

ICD-10 for Radiology Editorial: "Each practice should assess how this change in diagnosis coding applies to them."

ICD-10 for Radiology Editorial

In an ICD-10 article written for the Radiology Business Management Association (RBMA) Bulletin, Steve Schreiber, FRMBA, discusses the need to have the right patient intake information at the front end of the radiology workflow process to avoid backend delays, troubles and reduced revenues with the new coding system. Recognizing the need for specific anatomic site, etiology and severity will help scheduling teams and radiologic technologists to quickly gather information radiologists will need in their reports.
