Welcome to the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Program

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging modality that utilizes the resonant frequency properties of atoms that are placed within a powerful magnetic field. MRI provides excellent contrast between different soft tissues of the body making it especially useful in neurological (brain), musculoskeletal, and cardiovascular imaging.

This certificate program only begins in the Fall semester. There is no Spring or Summer admittance. Learn more by following the links below, or check out the Magnetic Resonance Imaging FAQ.
