Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a diagnostic technique that uses a strong magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to generate detailed, sectional images of human anatomy.
Two options available for the MRI Program
A bachelor’s degree in Radiologic and Imaging Sciences (BRIT) in MRI is available for students who have graduated from an accredited program in radiologic technology, nuclear medicine or radiation therapy. Students must also complete Kent Core (general education) courses and 8 credit hours of upper division electives toward degree requirements.
Students also have the option to complete the RIS courses related to MRI without completing other courses toward the bachelor’s degree.
Both options will provide the academic and clinical education necessary to sit for the ARRT certification exam in MRI.
Two Instructional Delivery Options for MRI:
1. MRI Hybrid Program: almost all RIS courses related to MRI are offered online through the Salem Campus except for MRI Procedures I and II, MRI Equipment and Image Acquisition I & II, and MRI Techniques. These are offered face-to-face at the Salem Campus on Tuesday evenings in the fall, spring and summer semesters. This type of instructional method is provided for those students who prefer a direct interaction with the instructor.
