Program Description


Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a growing and evolving imaging technology of great technical complexity in the medical diagnostic field. Knowledge of the technology and operation of the MRI equipment is essential to make optimal use of the technique and will provide future opportunities for those trained in this modality. Our MRI Certificate Training program is designed to meet the needs of Technologists entering the field of magnetic resonance imaging. This program constitutes a classroom and hospital training in MRI. Critical thinking and problem solving skills are emphasized throughout the program, to help students gain a practical understanding of MRI. MRI Education Group provides instruction in basic technical concepts, imaging procedures, quality control issues, and patient safety. Our complete training program includes preparation for the ARRT MRI Registry Examination and student MRI Clinical practice training. Our Hands-On clinical training is a useful learning aid in providing on-the-job training performing preliminary studies in MRI.
