Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), A.A.A.S.

Gain the skills and knowledge necessary to work as an MRI technologist, with an emphasis on professional attitudes, values and behaviors that will encourage your professional growth.

Become an highly trained MRI technologist with the advanced skills and knowledge necessary for success! Throughout your course work you will learn:

  • Critical thinking and communication skills.
  • The ability to synthesize information and apply rational judgment in determining appropriate protocols that affect image quality and diagnostic outcomes.
  • How to find balance between equipment capabilities and patient condition to arrive at the highest quality images for interpretation by the physician.
  • Exceptional attention to detail to prioritize patient care and safety.

The MiRIS MRI program provides a sound base of clinical practice in conjunction with course work in the related sciences and general education. Your MRI course work will be delivered online. And your clinical learning experiences will be provided by affiliating hospitals and clinics. Both are equally important to the development of the competent MRI technologist. Your faculty will facilitate your learning by planning, selecting, administering and assessing learning experiences to meet the objectives and eligibility requirements of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) to complete the MRI certification exam.

The MiRIS MRI program prepares students to become eligible to complete the MRI certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). The program awards a Certificate of Completion or terminates in an award of an Associates of Applied Science degree as determined by the college issuing the award. The program has been developed to be consistent with standards and requirements of the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT); the American College of Radiology (ACR); the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and the Michigan Radiologic and Imaging Science (MiRIS) consortium.
