MRI for Technologists is a compilation of 10 self-study units that cover foundational, technical, and safety concepts to advanced imaging protocols of various body systems. These educational units augment classroom instruction and on-site training, prepare learners for the review board examination, and refresh and enhance the knowledge of both radiologic technology students and professionals. Color images and embedded video enhance this learning experience.

The skill of the technologist is the single most important factor in the acquisition of high-quality diagnostic images. A successful MRI examination is the culmination of many variables under the direct control of the technologist, including imaging technique, patient safety, and the use of contrast-enhanced imaging agents. Comprehension of the physics of MRI, fundamental pulse sequences, the selection of appropriate imaging parameters based on the exam requirements, and the advantages of MRI for use in diagnosis of the individual body systems is the responsibility of the radiologic technologist to ensure safe and effective patient care.  

This program has been approved by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) for up to 22.5 ARRT Category A continuing education credits.
