Apply continuing education credits deemed by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)
The Magnetic Resonance Imaging undergraduate certificate program provides coursework in anatomy, patient management, procedures, and image production. Students observe magnetic resonance imaging procedures, perform procedures under direct supervision by registered technologists, and complete required clinical competencies toward the national certification exam for magnetic resonance imaging or to be applied toward continuing education requirements as deemed by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans are ordered on orthopedic, neurological, cardiovascular, cancer, and non-trauma patients and are extremely beneficial for examining soft tissue structures. An MRI technologist works in hospitals or outpatient healthcare facilities using an MRI scanner that uses a magnetic field and computer-generated radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues in the body. The images are assembled and reconstructed digitally to create a series of diagnostic images that physicians use to interpret for a patient diagnosis.
The Magnetic Resonance Imaging certificate offers a seamless transfer pathway into the Bachelor of Radiologic Imaging Sciences Technology (B.R.I.T.) degree. Students are able to complete the certificate, sit for the national certification exam, begin working in the profession and then enroll in the B.R.I.T. degree and complete the remaining requirements to earn the bachelor’s degree. The BRIT degree requires a grade of “C” (2.0) or better in the required RIS courses and a minimum of 2.75 cumulative GPA in the major.
