Role of the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Technologist

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a pathway within radiology. Specialized MRI equipment uses radio frequencies to create pictures of cross sections of human anatomy.

MRI technologists specialize in creating cross-sectional images that show soft tissue, bony anatomy, foreign bodies and pathologies, which help doctors diagnose and plan treatment of patients.

While students, MRI technologists work under the supervision of seasoned professionals or radiologists.

MRI technologists must be able to:

  • Work effectively with patients and health professionals
  • Operate sophisticated computer equipment
  • Observe magnetic protection measures
  • Provide only the best in patient care


From the American Society of Radiologic Technologists:

Our Mission

To graduate well-trained individuals for continued success as MRI Technologists by providing a comprehensive and thorough education through didactic and clinical experiences, with a focus on life-long learning.
