Magnetic Resonance Imaging is one of the fastest evolving and exciting fields in medical imaging. MRI has evolved to include cardiac MRI and functional MRI. You can be a part of this growing field with didactic (classroom) training and practical clinical rotations. The marriage of a solid theoretical background combined with clinical experience is the preparation needed to enter this field. The practical applications and clinical rotations are key ingredients to completing the training. You can choose the right combination of events to match your needs. The first component of training is theory, with weeks two through four available for clinical rotations. Invest in your future and advance your career.
Course Topics
Week 1 – Theory (total 32 hours)
• 20 hours Fundamentals of image formation/instrumentation/safety/physics of NMR
• 12 hours Basic Pulse Sequences/Protocols/Image Analysis
• CE Credit 32 Hours

Weeks 2,3,4 – Clinical Rotation
Technologists enrolling in clinical rotations are required to complete the theory portion of the fellowship course prior to being allowed to attend clinical rotations. 40 hours of clinical rotations (Monday-Friday) each week will give the fellowship technologist the opportunity to experience a wide array of exams, be tutored by experienced MR professionals who provide insights, advice, and help you get the most out of your training.
Certificate of Completion awarded reflecting clinical hours completed.
**No CE credit is awarded for clinical hours
This concentrated four-week modular course is designed to introduce many aspects of MRI operation in a practical format focused to promote understanding of concepts integrated with “hands on experience”. Course topics include computer operation, technical aspects of MR imaging, fundamental evaluation of cross-sectional anatomy, and image formation. The learning process is monitored and continuous.
Due to the vast amount of information course attendees must process; homework and or reading may be assigned each day. AHEC strives to provide the highest quality of continuing education and training in a setting that promotes learning.

Required Textbooks*
• MRI in Practice by Westbrook and Kaut
