Determination of Optimal MR Scheduled Exam Slot Time by Retrospective Analysis of Performed Exam Durations (AAPM2022)
Purpose: To identify the optimal scheduled time slot for magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) exams while accounting for the inherent variability in MR exam durations.
Impact: We show that the distribution of effective exam durations provided by Quantivly is key to identifying the optimal time slot for MR exams. Furthermore, grouping these data by relevant clinical variables can aid in identifying sources of variability that may guide future operational changes that improve clinical efficiency.
