Booking regulations

The MR systems are booked on an hourly basis.

Booking of clinical MR

Only projects approved by the MR Core Facility Research commitee (Forskningsutvalg) will be allowed to book time on the clinical MR systems. The coordinator for clinical MR is responsible for coordinating booking of time on the system and radiograph and will do the actual booking in most projects. Contact the coordinator for clinical MR for information about booking. 
The available times for booking is shown in green below:

Time Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday

During school holidays opening hours will be to 15:15 only all days of the week.

Cancellation of booking

Booked time after 15:15 must be cancelled at least 1 week in advance, and booked time between 08:00 and 15:15 must be cancelled before 12:00 the day in advance. Otherwise the booked time will be charged to the project even if it is not used.

The MR Core Facility staff will supervise the booking system and will interfere if anyone's booking practice is considered unjust. Users will be informed about their bad booking practice, and advised on how to improve. If, despite of this, bad booking practice continues, the scientific leaders of MR Core Facility will be informed and actions towards the user will be considered.

Booking regulations will be subject to change.
