Medical Imaging & Radiation Therapeutics

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Professional Certification
Certification in magnetic resonance imaging is a voluntary process by which a peer group evaluates the entry-level qualifications of an individual. By taking and passing a nationally administered exam in magnetic resonance imaging, the graduate is considered a Registered MRI Technologist.

The organization that currently registers MRI technologists is

American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT)
www.asrt.org

Occupational Licensure
Occupational licensure has traditionally been an exercise of a state's inherent power to protect the health, safety, and welfare of its citizens. The practice of medicine is considered a "state's rights" issue. Each state maintains its own regulations on medical practice, whether for a physician, nurse, pharmacist, or allied health professional.

MRI Technologists must be licensed in some states in the United States in order to practice radiation therapy. Contact state regulatory agencies for specific state information.
