Admission Requirements for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a special modality that utilizes computer technology in conjunction with magnetic fields and radiofrequency signals to obtain sectional images in any body plane. An MRI has the ability to distinguish differences in tissue composition and is the modality of choice in imaging the central nervous system and a variety of soft tissue structures.
This one-semester program prepares radiographers to perform MRI procedures in hospitals and imaging centers. The curriculum covers all subject areas listed in the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists’ Content Specifications for the Post Primary Examination in Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
