Radiographers experience of working in MRI environment : A qualitative interview (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: In the early 1980s, the use of the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in medical diagnostics increased. MRI examination is considered a safer method than the use of ionizing radiation. But there are some risks connection to with MRI examinations, for example, the strong magnetic field can affect ferromagnetic objects in the MR examinations room which may become projectiles. During MRI examinations, the safety for both patients and staff is of high importance. The radiographer is responsible for the safety associated with MRI examinations; this is possible by having knowledge about the safety routines. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate how radiographers experience their work in MRI environment. Method: Materials for this study were collected through interviews with four radiographers at two different MRI units. The interviews were analyzed by a manifest content analysis. Result: Three main categories were defined: the experience of collaboration; the experience of routines and the experience of need for development. All the participants felt safe and secure working in the MRI environment since they had good communication with each other and safety routines. The interaction with each other was a way to prevent accidents and injuries during the MRI examination. To be able to feel higher secure and safety in this environment, more understanding and knowledge from other staff from units were something the participants wanted.
