12-13 February 2023

 16 RANZCR CPD hours 

Dr Kanal has taught more people about MR safety issues than any other physician in the world today – over 7000 registrants to date!
The Kanal Method for clinical decision-making teaches you to;

a, Confidently Implement a formal standardised approach to scan/not scan in regards to patients with devices/implants/foreign bodies
b, Improve Patient Safety
c, Increase throughput at your site

Dr. Kanal’s MRMD/MRSO MR Safety Training Course is designed to help educate Physicians, MR Technologists and other MR staff about the unique safety considerations associated with all magnetic resonance environments. A primary course objective is to introduce the attendee to the Kanal Method – a methodical, standardized, prospectively defined approach to confidently assess and pseudo-quantify risks versus potential benefits of proceeding with a requested MR examination. This pertains to specific MR scanner, hardware and parameter settings for patients in whom there may be implanted devices and/or foreign bodies. The course not only helps the attendee understand the potential risks of a specific requested MR study, but it also teaches the attendee steps that might be undertaken to potentially mitigate those risks to a clinically acceptable level.

• Understanding the three fields/energies intrinsic to the MR imaging process, their unique temporal distributions, spatial distributions and magnitudes and the unique risks associated with each of these energies/fields.
• Introducing and applying steps that might be undertaken in order to mitigate MR-associated risks to clinically acceptable levels.
• “Putting it all together”: The Kanal Method. Introducing, defining, and applying a standardized approach for pseudo-quantifying and assessing risks versus benefits for any requested MR study on a device/implant/foreign body patient.

Emanuel Kanal Information



Dr. Kanal has been involved in researching and teaching the world about magnetic resonance (MR) safety issues for more than 30 years, since the introduction of MRI as a clinical diagnostic tool. Having chaired the first magnetic resonance safety committee ever created, he also chaired numerous other MR safety committees and has been continually involved in and/or leading MR safety initiatives ever since. These include, among others, having chaired the MR Safety Committee for the American College of Radiology from its inception in 2001 until the summer of 2012, being awarded fellowship in the American College of Radiology as well as the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, and being named a Special Government Employee to the Food and Drug Administration on MR safety issues for both the Division of Medical Imaging and Hematology Products/Drug Safety group (of the Office of Surveillance and Epidemiology) regarding magnetic resonance contrast agents as well as the FDA Center for Devices and Radiological Health regarding all matters relating to magnetic resonance safety.
