Scheduling Scanner Time
Once submitted project requests are reviewed and approved, a project is permitted to proceed with the reservation of MR scan time. A single individual is designated as the Project Contact via the MRI Scan Time Request Form. All scan times are booked using the CIS web-based scheduling system, which can be viewed by all CIS Level 1 Users. The smallest booking increment is 30 minutes. Each reservation will list the MRI Study Code and the name of the Level 3 Operator.
Reservations are made via coordination between the Lead MR Technician and the Project Contact. There are two ways the Project Contact can request scan time: advance requests and as-needed requests. Both types of requests are made within the CIS intranet portal. Reservations require the following information: project title, PI contact information, IRB approval numbers and date, Project Contact (name, email, and phone), MRI Study Code, account number for billing, total time requested, number of sessions, duration of sessions, preferred dates, unavailable dates, and days/times requested for those sessions.
