Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI is a specialty of diagnostic imaging which utilizes extremely strong magnetic fields and radiofrequency pulses to obtain images. As in Radiography, the MRI technologists work with the radiologists to diagnose and treat conditions and diseases. MRI scanners are located in outpatient clinics and hospital settings. The technologists work with other medical professionals to coordinate procedures and provide patient care.

The MRI Program is offered through a partnership of Kellogg Community College, Lansing Community College, Mid Michigan Community College, Grand Rapids Community College, Lake Michigan College, and Grand Valley State University.

The six colleges established the Michigan Radiologic and Imaging Science (MiRIS) Consortium for the purpose of sharing instructional resources to offer the MRI program. Each college enrolls students in the program under that college’s admission criteria and each awards the degree or certificate according to that college’s completion requirements. Upon successful completion of all program requirements, Mid Michigan Community College students will be awarded an associate degree of applied science in MRI and are eligible to take the MRI certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) earning nationally recognized professional credentials.
