CT and MRI
These programs are designed for technologists with no experience who want to learn how to perform CT or MRI, and for those experienced CT or MRI technologists who would like assistance in preparing to take the national certification exam offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), through a formal program of study.
Applicants must be graduates of an accredited imaging program and hold current ARRT certification in Radiography, Nuclear Medicine or Radiation Therapy or current certification with the Nuclear Medicine Technology Board (NMTCB). New graduates may also apply; however, preference will be given to registered technicians.
Both the CT and MRI programs offer four didactic courses. These courses are offered as hybrid courses both online and in class alternatively, and are provided in an interactive format to accommodate the working adult student. The programs have been designed based on the ASRT curriculum and ARRT content specifications. Students who currently work in the desired modality are able to utilize their place of employment as their clinical placement. Clinical placement and clinical locations are available to those who require it. The competency based clinical internships are flexible (16 hours/week) to accommodate the clinical affiliate as well as the students schedule when possible.
Advanced clinical placement is available for those not currently working in CT or MRI.
As of January 2016, the ARRT will require all applicants for post primary certification to complete formal education in order to qualify for the exam. Formal education reinforces material being taught on the job and ensures all technologists are being provided with key concepts for physics and image production.
