MR Manager's Corner

Charles Deschamps, B.S. R (RT)(MR)
MRI-CT Line Manager
Kent Hospital, Warwick, Rhode Island, USA

Welcome to the new forum for thought and discussion among those individuals who are responsible to manage the daily activities of the MR site. Our first question is posted by former SMRT Policy Board member Charles Deschamps, B.S. R (RT) (MR), who is employed as the MRI-CT Line Manager at Kent Hospital in Warwick, Rhode Island, USA.

He writes:


In the past it was customary for the technologist to make changes to an exam or billing code after the fact (post exam). With the current changes in insurance regulation, have the facilities moved this task closer to the scheduling or registration point of the exam cycle.

Are sites turning their patient’s away and rescheduling them if exam script does not match the exam ordered?
