Interventional MR imaging procedures are rapidly growing in number owing to the excellent soft tissue resolution of MR imaging, lack of ionizing radiation, hardware and software advancements, and technical developments in MR imaging-compatible robots, lasers, and ultrasound equipment. The safe operation of an interventional MR imaging system is a complex undertaking, which is only possible with multidisciplinary planning, training, operations and oversight. Safety for both patients and operators is essential for successful operations. Herein, we review the safety concerns, solutions and challenges associated with the operation of a modern interventional MR imaging system.
