Notes:
Page the Radiologist to Plan and place the axial cine sequence. The positioning will depend on the patient anatomy, but it will generally be in this area (see Image below). Feel free to set it up and send the rads a screenshot of what you have done to save them a trip to MRI but get it checked before running it. The Radiologist must check the Images.
