Magnetic Resonance Safety Officer (MRSO) Advanced Training

This course is intended to prepare the students to take and pass the MRSE Examination administered through American Board of Magnetic Resonance Safety (ABMRS).



Though it is the Magnetic Resonance Safety Director (MRSD) who is ultimately responsible for the safety of the MRI facility and faculty, the Magnetic Resonance Safety Officer (MRSO) is obliged to enforce the MR safety policies of the facility. The MRSO will review the facility safety standards and the American College of Radiology (ACR) to ensure that the facility is in compliance with the established regulations to ensure the MR facility is safe for patients and faculty.

In the Advanced Magnetic Resonance Safety Expert Course, you will learn:

  • Module 1: How does MRSO work? Comprehend how to use the MRSO Safety Manual and define how Magnetic resonance works.
  • Module 2: Safety Precautions: Discover and apply safety precautions in Magnetic Resonance.
  • Module 3: Time-varying magnetic fields: Recognize how time-varying magnetic fields change over time. In MRI, this is used to locate the tissue to be examined and to induce resonance in its hydrogen nuclei.
  • Module 4: Utilizing the measurement unit: Learn the magnetic field’s effect and use the measurement unit.
  • Module 5: Time-Varying RF Field: Understand what a time-varying RF field is and why it’s necessary for MRI.
  • Module 6: Cryognen and the side effects of Gadolinium: Define Cryognen and discuss the side effects of Gadolinium present in contrasts during an MRI test.
  • Module 7: MRI and Implants: Identify important steps to consider when performing an MRI on a patient with implants.
  • Module 8: MRI Requirements: Discover the many organizations that provide the rules, nomenclature, and acceptable dosages that must be followed to keep patients and employees safe in the Magnetic Resonance environment.
  • Module 9: Supporting Organizations: Locate other organizations that assist in providing information to protect the safety of MRI patients in the Magnetic Resonance environment.
  • Module 10: Additional Practice Exams: Hundreds of questions and answers to prepare the student for the MRSO Exam. These quizzes can be taken as often as necessary. 

The student will benefit from taking this course because:

  • It covers all material that you need to prepare and pass your MRSO exam. Our course was written and developed by a board-certified MRSE with over 10 years of experience in medical safety training.
  • Practice Tests are available to help prepare you for the real exam.
  • Flash cards are available for you to download.
  • Official and verifiable TITAN University certification can be downloaded immediately after a passing score of 70% or higher showing your advanced knowledge in the MRSO field.
  • Take breaks when you need to and take the course at your own pace.
  • Have a question, just ask us on the Contact Us page and we will make sure your question is answered promptly.

What is an MRSO job description?

An MRSO is a Magnetic Resonance Safety Officer. This certification route is intended for personnel who are ready to provide safety oversight to their MRI Suite. The MRSO is to ensure facility safety and ACR policies are adhered to. They are to make sure that work instructions, safety procedures, and operating instructions are not only understood but followed by MR faculty and patients.

What is the MRSO exam pass rate?

There is not a set passing rate for the exam. The exam is based on 100 multiple choice and True/False questions. The questions are provided by an ABMRS question bank. The level of difficulty of the exam will result in the passing rate for the actual exam you are taking. Therefore, the passing rate varies from person to person.

What is an MRSO salary?

It was determined in 2022 by multiple sources that the average salary of an MRSO varied by state. But on a federal level, the average salary of an MRSO was around $55,000 per year.

Will I be able to take an MRSO practice exam?

This is the course to prepare the student to take the exam. Practice exams are also available on our website if you wish to practice taking the exam. They are a mockup of similar questions you would expect to take on the real exam with the ABMRS.

Is this course an MRSO prep course?

Yes. This course will educate and prepare you to take the real exam administered by ABMRS.

Does this course come with study flash cards?

When you sign up for our course, you will also have access to flash cards and other downloadable support materials.

What is the primary purpose of the ABMRS board MRSO exam?

It is the ABMRS’s mission to ensure that our MRIs are operated safely and to prevent injury to medical personnel, patients, or property. This organization is structured entirely autonomous and is not affiliated with any credentialling boards or bodies. As such, certifying MRSOs aid in the overall safety mission of education and awareness of MRI safety in the workforce.

Is there an MRSO study guide?

This course will provide you a complete study guide and outline for you to use and prepare for your exam. You can download it and take it with you once you sign up for the course.

What type of metal is MRI safe?

Any metal is deemed “MR Safe” and non-ferrous would be considered safe. The biggest issue with metals and MRIs is if they have a magnetic charge. So, if you have 100% pure titanium, gold, and sterling silver they metals will be deemed safe within the MRI zones. Please note that most medical facilities will still not allow any metals within the MRI zones for safety precautions.

What are the four MRI safety zones?

Zone 1 is the general public area outside of the MRI environment. This could be anyone within the hospital, but not necessarily within the MRI suite of lobby.

Zone 2 is the area that tends to be between the general public area outside of the MRI suite and the control room. These areas is usually the waiting area or lobby within the MRI suite.

Zone 3 is when you begin to cross over to restricted areas. In this area, we’re more likely inside of the control room that is operating the MRI. We are in between the MRI suite lobby and the MRI room.

Zone 4 is the magnet room and the highest zone within the MRI zones. The MRI scan room door is closed and locked and usually only the patient and an authorized MRI personnel is in the room monitoring the scanning operation.
