Magnetic Resonance Imaging Program:  Registry Prep and Review
The goal of the program is to prepare Radiologic Technologists, Nuclear Medicine Technologists, Radiation Therapy Technologists and other Licensed Imaging Technologists to sit for and pass the ARRT exam in Magnetic Resonance Imaging.  Course curricula and clinical competency (at your place of employment or clinical affiliate) follow the guidelines established by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.  Course Objective - The objective of this ASRT approved 87.5 CEU Category A credit course is to prepare certified technologists for the successful completion of the post primary examination in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The curriculum has been developed to provide the student with the cognitive skills necessary for entry-level technologists to practice in the field of Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Part I of the course will include: Basic Physics of Magnetism, Image Formation, Pulse Sequences, and Equipment operations.  Part II of the course will include: Patient care, MRI safety, Cross-sectional anatomy, data acquisition, image display and post processing of all imaging procedures, quality control, informatics, contrast media, and MRI Artifacts.  Students are required to pass the program with a minimum of a 75% grade point average and will receive the ASRT approved 87.5 CEU credits if they attend the entire didactic program.  Attendance is mandatory for CEU credits.  To qualify and complete all of the board requirements, Students will be required to meet all supervised clinical competency standards (at participating facilities or at your own place of employment) to be eligible for the ARRT exam.  These clinical requirements can be achieved in concert or after the didactic course.

The didactic course will be taught Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30-9:30pm, every Spring semester following the Molloy College 14-week academic schedule at Molloy's Rockville Centre campus.  Textbooks are highly recommended.
