At all sites, researchers are expected to show up on time for their reserved scan slots. Users who run past their reserved time will be charged for the extra time, and they must leave before the next group arrives to avoid inconveniencing fellow researchers.
All people using the MR systems must treat the equipment with care, especially the fiber optic cables. After the scan, all equipment should be carefully replaced in their storage locations. Researchers (not the MR tech) should transfer used sheets, blankets, and gowns to the laundry bin after the scan.
