Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) curriculum prepares students to become MRI technologist and skilled health care professionals that are trained to use magnetic energy fields to produce images of the human body.

Course work includes clinical rotations, imaging fundamentals, MRI physics, procedures, anatomy, pathology, patient care, and imaging ethics and law, in a medical environment. Students should be able to demonstrate all functional areas related to the magnetic resonance imaging field.

Graduates of accredited programs may be eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists’ (ARRT) national examination for certification and registration as MRI technologists. Graduates may be employed in hospitals, outpatient clinics, physicians’ offices, government agencies, and research.

ECC is approved by the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges to offer the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Curriculum. ECC has entered into a Level III Instructional Service Agreement with Johnston Community College and Vance-Granville Community College to better meet the needs of students and health care facilities across eastern North Carolina. This collaborative program is referred to as the Eastern North Carolina Consortium of Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging program. Each semester the curriculum is offered through ECC and taught at one or more of the colleges within the Consortium.

In all health science curricula, students are assigned clinical rotations with area health care agencies. Prior to or at any time after admission, the health sciences student may be required to submit to a criminal background check and/or drug screen.
