Level III- certified MR system users can operate the scanner independently, without an MR technologist. (See MR Safety Training for details on Level III certification and its prerequisites.) This usage type is called "Unassisted". Level III- certified users have swipe access to the MR rooms.
Every user has the option to work with the MR technologist (if the MR technologist's schedule permits). This usage type is called "Assisted". Before booking an assisted scan, log into iLab and check the calendar "MR Technologist Availability". Confirm with the MR technologist before booking the scan. When booking the scan ticket, select "Assisted" as your usage type. When the Reservation Details page says “Invite additional people to this event by email”, enter the MR technologist’s email here.
Users who lack Level III certification do not have swipe access to the MR control rooms. The MR technologist gives control room access on the day of the scan.
