The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) program is a 12-month post-associate degree program that provides didactic and clinical instruction to currently certified American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) or Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) and state licensed (as applicable) Radiation Therapy Technologists.
Magnetic resonance technologists use the resonant frequency properties of atoms within a magnetic field to image anatomic and/or physiologic conditions of the body to assist physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. MRI is an imaging modality that produces exceptionally detailed images of the tissues and organs of the body in a variety of imaging planes. This course of study focuses on the underlying scientific theory, sectional anatomy, pathology and clinical protocols. Emphasis is placed on patient care and safety, principles of magnetism and the physical and chemical interactions of living matter within magnetic fields.
This certification will prepare students to make an application to sit for the post-primary certification examination in Magnetic Resonance Imaging administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) pending review and approval by ARRT.
Licensure - Employment in this field requires Texas licensure from the Texas Medical Board/ American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (State & National).
Program is accepting applications from Wednesday September 1, 2021 until December 3, 2021. Applications are accepted until all clinical assignments are filled. Classes are scheduled to start, Spring Semester 2022. The class schedule will be announced soon.
The MRI Certificate Program is accepting applications from canidates that currently hold the following credentials:
Currently Certified American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT)
Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB)
