Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) curriculum prepares students to become MRI technologists and skilled health care professionals that are educated to use magnetic energy fields to produce images of the human body.
Course work includes Imaging fundamentals, MRI physics, procedures, anatomy, pathology, patient care, and Imaging ethics and law, in a medical environment. Students should be able to demonstrate all functional areas related to the magnetic resonance imaging field.
Graduates of accredited programs may be eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists’ (ARRT) national examination for certification and registration as MRI technologists. Graduates may be employed in hospitals, outpatient clinics, physicians’ offices, government agencies and research.
The following represents one way in which the program of study can be completed. Students who aren’t able to follow this plan should consult their academic advisor to be sure that they take courses in the best order for their success.

Criminal Background Checks/Drug Screening
Clinical agencies require criminal background checks and/or drug screening for students assigned to their facility for clinical education. In addition, national and/or state registry and/or licensure boards may prohibit eligibility for registry or licensure based on criminal background records. Please refer to the Health Technologies section on www.forsythtech.edu.
