Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves with computerized equipment to generate sectional images of patient anatomy.  MRI technologists use problem solving and critical skills to adapt procedural requirements to the patient and specific area of study.

The MRI program at HCC offers students an Advanced Technical Certificate specializing in MRI. Academic and clinical studies prepare technologists to provide quality patient care and perform studies utilizing imaging equipment, professional communication, and quality assurance in scheduled and emergency procedures.

Program eligibility is limited to ARRT-registered radiographers, radiation therapists or nuclear medicine technologists or equivalent (NMTCB) registration. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be eligible to take the post-primary certification exam offered by the ARRT for MRI.

This ARRT MRI Exam qualifies all graduates to apply for Florida state licensure and operation of MRI equipment.

 

Spring Application Deadline: April 15
