Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Certificate, Credit Certificate
The Magnetic Resonance Imaging program is designed to provide the working Radiologic Technologist with the theoretical background and documented clinical experience necessary to apply to sit for the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) registry examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).* The certificate is based on the curriculum suggested by the American Society for Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and the clinical standards required by the ARRT. Required didactic components will be offered as well as optional clinical components based on student need. The didactic component of the curriculum will be delivered both on-line using Brightspace and in a classroom setting with lectures and discussion. The clinical component will be gained in an array of clinical affiliates.
*CCBC does not guarantee that students will complete all clinical requirements for the ARRT exam.
Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be able to:
- apply knowledge and skills from the biological, physical, social and behavioral sciences to perform Magnetic Resonance Imaging;
- explain how to produce detailed cross sectional images that can be used to diagnose diseases and disorders; and
- describe the skills necessary to perform as an entry-level Magnetic Resonance Imaging technologist.
