MRI Spectroscopy CE Course

Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is a very important supplement to MRI for research and medical diagnosis and is increasingly applied to improve the characterization of tissues in normal and pathological states. This continuing education course was designed to present radiologic technologists with an overview of the principles of MRS imaging and its different applications. It will also cover the physical principles, measurements techniques, and quantification methods of proton MRS imaging. In addition, the course will cover clinical applications of MRI spectroscopy and discuss specific considerations in different pathologies.

This course is accredited by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and is guaranteed to be accepted for American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® (ARRT ®) license renewal and the American Registry of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technologists (ARMRIT) for 8 Category A CE credits. It also meets the radiology CE requirements for the states of Texas, Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Mexico, and Oregon.
MRI Spectroscopy is broken into 6 modules, followed by a post-test. Medical Professionals adheres to ARRT ® regulations, which means you have 3 attempts to pass the post-test with a score of 75% or higher. Upon passing the post-test, you can download your certificate for this course for your records and for reporting your CE credits to your state or to the ARRT ®.
