Who are these courses designed for?
Radiologists using MRI. (If you are a Technologist looking for online education, visit our partners Pulse Radiology.)
MRI Online is for radiologists looking to improve their practice of MRI, with a special focus on MSK, Neuro and Body Imaging. MRI Online has hundreds of hours of lectures and case reviews, designed for radiologists in residency, just starting out with MRI, all the way up to experienced attending radiologists interested in taking on a new focus area (like small joints), improving their accuracy or just seeing a high volume of challenging and interesting cases.

Interactive learning format — learn from world-renowned radiologists who reads cases and draws anatomy. Covers anatomy, protocols and case review. Perfect for the busy radiologist.
- Professional Lecture Series – In-depth, didactic courses utilizing Power Point slides. Longer-format, most lectures are more than an hour. These courses are ideal for radiologist looking for fundamentals and full coverage of pathology. Example: Neuro Professional Series (46 hours!)
- Courses on Demand – Replays of our live, multi-day conferences. See our Australia Ortho Case Review and Neuro Case Review with over 30 hours of lecture and 150+ cases reviewed.
- Power Packs – Each Power Packs includes teaching cases on a specific topic. With a history, a challenge question and access to our interactive mobile case viewer — you are now placed in the hot seat. This is the best way to test your knowledge, see a large volume of MRI cases and improve your skills. Examples: Knee, Spine.
- Noon Conference - Radiologists and residents around the world are rapidly adapting to their new workflow during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many resident programs have reduced or canceled their daily lectures and practicing radiologists have seen their clinical volumes decrease significantly. MRI Online recognizes the need to continue to provide practicing radiologists and residents an excellent educational experience. Beginning Monday March 23, 2020 we will be offering daily noon lectures available live, online at no charge. Please join us as you have the opportunity to learn from some of the most well respected radiology educators in the world.
- Case Review Live - Case Review Live focuses on a different radiology subspecialty, providing you the opportunity to interpret cases before our faculty walks you through the diagnoses.

How does MRI Online ensure the anonymization of cases?
MRI Online Anonymization Protocols andPolicies
MRI Online is an online educational platform dedicated to improving radiologists clinical practice. FullDICOM data sets are a key component of this learning process, radiologists must be able to scroll through real-life image sets in order to mimic the real world clinical setting to practice, learn and gain skills.
DICOM datasets in their original format contain patient data. It is critical to protect that patient’s data. MRIOnline has a zero tolerance policy for publishing patient data to its platform and takes the protection of patient data with extreme seriousness and caution.
There are many patient anonymization algorithms on the market. However, with today's technology, it is not possible for an algorithm to be 100% accurate in the removal of PHI. Oftentimes data exists outside ofDICOM metadata tags, for example: PHI can be burned directly onto an image (common but not limited toUltrasound studies), paperwork containing PHI can be DICOM-ized. The only way data can be 100% PHI free is with the assistance of a human review.
MRI Online’s Process
Step 1: Presenters are required to anonymize image sets using their preferred and/or institution’s approved software. Presenters then submit that data to us via Ambra*, a cloud-based image transfer solution.
Step 2: All data imported into Ambra* is anonymized using Ambra’s anonymization algorithm.
Step 3: An MRI Online team-member reviews each case for PHI, removes any existing PHI and marks the case as ready to publish.
Step 4: A second team-member reviews the case for PHI; if there is no PHI, they approve and publish the case to MRI Online.
This process includes the application of two algorithmic checks and two human validation checks.
In the unlikely event that PHI is discovered on MRI Online, our policy is to immediately disable the web viewer for all studies and all users. The team then undergoes a thorough audit and investigation to remove any PHI, understand the root cause of the issue and report out to impacted stakeholders.
Only after the PHI is removed and the cause of the issue resolved will the viewer be re-enabled.* Note: Ambra is a large, enterprise-grade, HIPAA compliant medical image transfer company with 100+employees and is used by Stanford, Cornell and Johns Hopkins, along with hundreds of other medical institutions.
