Magnetic Resonance Imaging Curriculum

 

 

Term I

MR-102 Introduction to MRI: Patient Care & Safety

This course is designed overview of the foundations in radiologic science and the practitioner’s role in the healthcare delivery system. The principles, practices and policies of healthcare organizations are examined and discussed in addition to the professional responsibilities of the MR technologist. The course also provides a background in ethics, legal issues, pharmacology as well as in depth content related to principles of MR safety. (16 clock hours)

 

MR-103 Principles of MRI

This course is designed to provide the student with a comprehensive overview of MR imaging principles and the instrumentation associated with MR imaging. Students will also gain knowledge of the parameters and imaging options used to create MR images as well as an overview of MR pulse sequences. (28 clock hours)
    

MR- 104 MRI Anatomy

This course is designed to develop a strong understanding of multiplanar images (axial, sagittal, coronal and orthogonal) of human anatomy created by MR that will aid in performing critical assessment of volumetric image renderings from these data sets. (32 clock hours)

 

MR-106 MRI Clinical Education I

This course is designed to provide the student with clinical experiences in which imaging techniques related to the central nervous system (CNS), neck, thorax, musculoskeletal system and abdominopelvic regions can be observed and performed. The student will observe, participate, and perform MR procedures and related areas such as clinical application, coil selection, considerations in the scan sequences, and specific choices in the protocols (e.g., slice thickness, phase direction and flow compensation), positioning criteria and processing.  Students will begin performing clinical competency examinations. (448 clock hours)

 

Term II

 

MR-204 MRI Procedures

This course is designed to provide the student with imaging techniques related to the central nervous system (CNS), neck, thorax, musculoskeletal system and abdominopelvic regions. The content covers specific clinical application, available coils and their use, considerations in the scan sequences, specific choices in the protocols (e.g., slice thickness, phase direction and flow compensation) and positioning criteria. Anatomical structures and the plane that best demonstrates anatomy are discussed as well as signal characteristics or normal and abnormal structures and related pathology. Course content also includes cardiac MRI procedures, post-processing procedures and quality assurance. (48 clock hours)  

   

MR-212 MRI Certification Examination Review

This course is designed to prepare the student to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists examination. The information presented throughout the 8-month program is reviewed through lecture, handouts and games. The student is given a number of registry type practice examinations.

All required mock registry examinations must be completed prior to completing the program. (48 clock hours)

Prerequisite: ALL MR courses and successful completion (75 % or better) of three (3) preliminary review examinations.

 

MR-206 MRI Clinical Education II

This course is designed to provide the student with clinical experiences in which imaging techniques related to the central nervous system (CNS), neck, thorax, musculoskeletal system and abdominopelvic regions can be observed and performed. The student will observe, participate, and perform MR procedures and related areas such as clinical application, coil selection, considerations in the scan sequences, and specific choices in the protocols (e.g., slice thickness, phase direction and flow compensation), positioning criteria and processing.  Students will begin performing clinical competency examinations. (448 clock hours)
