Magnetic Resonance Imaging Admissions

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) diploma prepares students to visualize cross-sectional anatomical structures and aid physicians in the demonstration of pathologies and disease processes. Coursework, including academic and clinic studies, prepares the technologist to provide patient care, perform studies using specialized imaging equipment, communicate professionally and provide quality assurance in scheduled and emergency procedures.
