QC-Track Module:   MRI
The QC-Track module for MRI QC meets the needs of the most widely followed regulations in MRI quality control, including the ACR Continuous Quality Control Program per their MRI and Breast MRI "Accreditation Program Requirements" and The Joint Commission "Diagnostic Imaging Requirements," as well as vendor QC programs for the MRI vendors.

Structured Workflow
QC-Track provides the structure needed in any QC program.
  • Worksheet data fields, constants, limits, and calculations
  • On-the-spot pass-fail, with email notifications
  • Standard and Automated Worksheet templates for ACR and vendor QC workflows
  • Easy customization to accommodate site-specific needs, physicist requests, or inspection purposes
  • Modality-specific workflow features, such as the capacity to pull forward the previous center frequency to compare to this week’s value

QC-Track offers two workflows for MRI:
  • Standard Worksheet QC data is entered by the technologist into worksheets on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis, depending on the QC program being followed.
  • Automated Phantom QC is available for the ACR MRI phantom. Automated Phantom Analysis provides a fast, flexible, and consistent method to extract and process DICOM data and automatically insert the data into QC-Track worksheets.

Reports
QC-Track standard reports meet the reporting needs of MRI teams, including:
  • QC Checklist Report, to show daily status of QC by test over the selected time period
  • Quarterly reports for physicist review

Electronic Sign Off
Standard QC-Track Sign Off for the weekly MRI workflow captures the ACR-required annual medical physicist sign off.

  • Restrictions: Automated Phantom QC is not available for clients on cloud-hosted installations of QC-Track.

Other Resources
ACR
The ACR Continuous Quality Control (CQC) program specifies tests and frequencies within their ACR MRI Accreditation Program Requirements. For more MRI information, see ACR MRI Accreditation Page.

For Breast MRI, see ACR Breast MRI Accreditation Program Requirements or ACR Breast MRI Accreditation Page.

TJC
MRI is one of the modalities that falls under The Joint Commission Diagnostic Imaging Requirements, along with CT, PET, and NM. The TJC requires facilities to identify their QC plan and demonstrate that the team is following the plan. See TJC Compliance Checklist.
