    Physical Principles and Instrumentation

    3  credit hours

    Comprehensive overview of MR imaging principles as well as the instrumentation associated with MR imaging. Provides a basic understanding of the principles and system components of MR image acquisition. This information enables the student to maximize MR image quality by understanding the fundamentals and system components of MR imaging. Prerequisite: Admission to the program is required. (3 lecture hours)

  • MRIT 2102 
    Sectional Anatomy

    3  credit hours

    A study of normal anatomy and normal variations, as well as its appearance in multiple planes, enables the student to better recognize abnormal conditions and make the associated imaging changes required to adequately demonstrate the patient's anatomy and pathology. Prerequisite: Admission to the program is required. (3 lecture hours)

  • MRIT 2103 
    Principles and Procedures I

    3  credit hours

    The content covers specific clinical applications, coils that are available and their use, considerations in the scan sequences, specific choices in the protocols and positioning criteria. Anatomical structures and the plane that best demonstrates anatomy are discussed, as well as signal characteristics of normal and abnormal structures. Prerequisite: Admission to the program is required. (2 lecture hours, 2 lab hours)

  • MRIT 2104 
    Clinical Practice I

    3  credit hours

    Content is presented as a progression in competency levels through clinical performance objectives and competency exams. Prerequisite: Admission to the program is required. (6 lab hours)

  • MRIT 2105 
    MR Pathology

    3  credit hours

    The magnetic resonance imaging pathology course familiarizes the student with the common pathologies found in magnetic resonance imaging and the appearance of these pathologies in various imaging protocols. Prerequisite: Consent of instructor is required. (3 lecture hours)

  • MRIT 2106 
    Imaging Applications

    3  credit hours

    Imaging applications provide the student with a comprehensive overview of MR pulse sequences, image formation, and image contrast, as well as the knowledge of the parameters and imaging options used to create MR images. Prerequisite: Admission to the program and consent of instructor is required. (2 lecture hours, 2 lab hours)

  • MRIT 2107
