Galveston College is accepting applications from now through Oct. 30 for spring 2021 admission to the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technology program.
MRI technologists are allied health professionals who use magnetic resonance imaging to capture 3D images of the body to determine pathology versus normal tissue. The MRI technologist performs various diagnostic procedures under the supervision of a licensed radiologist and works closely with patients to provide instruction and quality care while producing quality images.
MRI is unique in the field of diagnostic imaging because of the manner in which images are obtained. MRI uses strong magnetic fields and radio frequencies to create images of the patient’s internal structures. This is accomplished without the use of ionizing radiation.
MRI Technology is a post-associate degree certificate program designed for cross-trained professionals such as radiographers, nuclear medicine technologists, ultrasound technologists and radiation therapy technologists.
Upon completion of the 31-credit-hour program and completion of all clinical requisites as mandated by American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT), the student will be eligible to sit for the ARRT MRI registry.
