Article Abstract
Use of advanced imaging in the emergency department has been increasing in the United States during the past 2 decades. This trend has been most notable in CT, which has increased concern over the effects of increasing levels of medical ionizing radiation. MR imaging offers a safe, nonionizing alternative to CT and is diagnostically superior in many neurologic conditions encountered in the emergency department. Herein, we describe the process of developing and installing a dedicated MR imaging scanner in the Neuroscience Emergency Department at the Barrow Neurological Institute and its effects on neuroradiology and the emergency department in general.
