Charging Cardiac Exams

If you scan a Cardiac and end the study with a CE enhanced Chest or Aorta, please charge the Cardiac as a noncontrast and include velocity flow when appropriate.  Then add MRA of chest w/contrast and add the contrast charge to this charge.  If you do not add the contrast to the sequence header, please include a screen shot that states Contrast and amount.  This is a required step.

Please remember to have the cardiologist fill out a Protocol sheet on all cardiac exams and sign, then staple to the paperwork.  The research Cardiac exams do not require this order and please use the "no protocol required" in the protocol viewer.

Thanks for your help.
