Professional Prospectus

This course serves to orientate the MRI student to the profession of medical imaging. Students will explore the integration of MRI within the encompassing health care system. The evolution of MRI as a profession will be investigated with students classifying various organizations and agencies that drive the development and continuing education of the MRI technologist’s role and responsibilities.

MRI Clinical Practice 3

This is the final clinical course in a series of three that provides the necessary supervised clinical education needed to complete all remaining competencies required by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) following the Primary Pathway requirements. Emphasis will be placed on patient safety and comfort while professional values, attitudes, and behaviors are upheld.

Computer Applications in Medical Imaging

This course serves to provide the MRI student with a basic understanding of computer applications. Students will explore the components, principles, and operation of digital imaging systems, image data management, and data manipulation as it relates to the imaging department. Students will also explore the basic concepts of patient information management including medical record concerns, patient privacy, and regulatory issues.

MR Physics 1

This is the first in a series of two courses that provide the MRI student with a basic foundation of MRI physics. Students will explore the properties of atoms and their interactions within the magnetic field. Emphasis will be placed on the basic principles of MRI, data acquisition, and tissues characteristics in image formation.

Independent Study

An opportunity for the interested student with a good scholastic record to pursue independently the study of some subject under the direction of a member(s) of the professional staff. Subjects are chosen and arrangements made to suit the needs of individual students. Course may be repeated for credit toward graduation up to three credit hours.

Statistics

A study of basic descriptive statistics, introduction to probability, probability distributions, sam_pling theory, hypothesis testing, analysis distributions, sampling theory, hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, and linear cor_relation and regression. Students are required to have a graphing calculator. Specifications will be made by the instructor. Lab Fee
