Rates of safety incident reporting in MRI in a large academic medical center.

Mansouri M, Aran S, Harvey HB, et al. Journal of magnetic resonance imaging : JMRI. 2016;43:998-1007.

This analysis of incident reports related to magnetic resonance imaging found that, similar to other settings, incident reports are infrequent, and most do not result in patient harm. Common reasons for reports were associated with test orders, adverse drug reactions, and safety of intravenous medication administration. Given known under-reporting in voluntary reporting systems, future work should incorporate other safety hazard detection methods.
