MRI Development & Registry Prep

The MRI Registry Review and Preparation course has been designed as a review of the topics included on the certification examination conducted by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). The program content has been approved by the ASRT and satisfies the 16 hour ARRT didactic requirement to sit for the post primary examination. All of the major topics and outlined areas listed in the exam specifications will be covered making this program a very good preparation for this examination. The review will be broken down into a four parts (Patient Care, Safety, Image Production and Procedures) making this an effective way to review and prepare for the examination without an overload of information. This review can also serve as a comprehensive overview of MRI for those wanting to use it to update skills as well.
