MRI Program Courses

COURSES: 

MRI 100 - Introduction to Magnetic Resonance Imaging

This course is delivered in a traditional classroom style and provides the student with information necessary to enter into the magnetic resonance imaging clinical setting. Topics to include: history, screening procedures, safety precautions, contrast agents used, contraindications, equipment operated, professional roles and behavior, professional attitudes and communications, processing of images, routine examinations and protocols utilized, image artifacts and compensation. Students will receive an introduction to the physics associated with magnetic resonance imaging. Also included will be hospital and departmental organization, and hospital and program affiliation.
Prerequisite: Admission to Magnetic Resonance Imaging Program
  

MRI 101 – Introduction to Computed Tomography & Magnetic Resonance Imaging

This course is delivered in a traditional classroom style and provides the student with information necessary to enter into the computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging clinical setting. Topics to include: history, screening procedures, safety precautions, contrast agents used, contraindications, equipment operated, professional roles and behavior, professional attitudes and communications, processing of images, routine examinations and protocols utilized, image artifacts and compensation for both modalities. Students will receive an introduction to the physics associated with computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Also included will be hospital and departmental organization, and hospital and program affiliation.
Prerequisite: Admission to the Computed Tomography or Magnetic Resonance Imaging Programs  

MRI 102 – Cross Sectional Anatomy and Pathology

This course is delivered in a traditional classroom style and provides the student with fundamental anatomy and pathology associated with computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the head, neck, face and spine, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis, upper and lower extremities. The various structures will be demonstrated in the axial, sagittal and coronal imaging planes.                                                                                                                                                                                    Prerequisites: CT 100, MRI 101, or CT 104 – Introduction to Computed Tomography or MRI 100, MRI 101, or MRI 104 – Introduction to Magnetic Resonance Imaging   

MRI 103 – Magnetic Resonance Physics


This course is delivered in a traditional classroom style and provides the student with the principles of MRI scanning and the physics related to obtaining an MRI signal. Topics will include: Image weighting and contrast, spatial encoding and image formation, parameters and trade-offs, pulse sequences, flow phenomena, artifacts and their compensation, vascular and cardiac imaging, contrast agents, functional imaging techniques, instrumentation and equipment.

Prerequisite: MRI 100, MRI 101, or MRI 104 – Introduction to Magnetic Resonance Imaging

 

Clinical Course:

The clinical component of the MRI Program is 400 hours. Clinical hours must be completed at two different approved sites. Students are assigned to clinical sites during the first semester of the program based on site availability and student needs. Supervised sessions emphase development of MRI skills. Emphasis on enhanced student knowledge of MRI parameters, anatomy and pathology demonstration and image quality. Practical application of safety screening, contrast administration, positioning and image acquisition. 

MRI 200 – Magnetic Resonance Imaging Clinical Experience


Magnetic resonance imaging technologists are highly skilled professionals who use powerful magnets to obtain detailed images of the various structures in the human body. MRI technologists must have the ability to interact effectively with physicians and compassionately towards their patients

The clinical portion of the MRI Program is designed to prepare students to be competent, efficient working technologists. Upon successful completion of the MRI clinical course, students will have met the examination requirements for the ARRT, and be eligible to sit for the MRI certification exam.

Prerequisite: MRI 100, MRI 101, or MRI 104 – Introduction to Magnetic Resonance Imaging  

 

Students are responsible for completing specified competencies and fulfilling ARRT requirements.   

Credits may not transfer to institutions of higher learning.
