PRIMARY PATHWAY: MRI
WORKING IN MRI
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) procedures play an important role in diagnosing diseases and injuries. Although a radiologist reviews MRI results, as a technologist you’re responsible for obtaining the best images possible. Your patients might be in pain or distress, or they might feel claustrophobic. You’ll provide support while talking patients through the procedure and letting them know what to expect.
As an MRI technologist, you’ll work with radiologists to play an important role on the patient’s medical team. MRI is a rewarding field, and you’ll learn and grow as technology advances.
GET STARTED ON YOUR CREDENTIAL
Just as for your first ARRT credential, you’ll have to fulfill requirements in education, ethics, and examination before you obtain a credential in Magnetic Resonance Imaging using the primary pathway.
After looking over the requirements, review these important documents:
- Primary Pathway Handbook
- Didactic and Clinical Competency Requirements
- Content Specifications
- Task Inventory
The MRI credential can also be obtained through our postprimary pathway. To use this route you must meet a different set of requirements.
Earning an additional credential is a great way to advance your career. If you have questions along the way, we're here to help. Take a look at our primary FAQs, send us a message, or call us for more information.
