Magnetic Resonance Imaging
31 SEMESTER HOURS
Magnetic resonance imaging is an advanced-level medical imaging procedure during which MRI technologists use the interaction of magnetic fields and radio waves with tissues to produce cross-sectional images of the body parts being scanned. They also prepare and administer contrast agents to obtain some images. MRI continues to advance in its science and provide useful information in medical research and medicine. This modality, unlike radiology and computed tomography, is used to provide anatomic and physiologic information without the use of ionizing radiation.
This two-semester program includes online and clinical applications. Courses are sequenced so the registered radiographer can take the 31 credit hour courses and gain knowledge of basic magnetic resonance imaging and clinical applications. The program begins each fall and accepts a limited number of students. Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) post-primary registry in Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
