The School of Diagnostic Imaging, Cleveland Clinic Health System, offers an advanced imaging program as well as individual courses in Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The program offers didactic classroom and clinical instruction in each modality designed to assist the radiologic technologist in becoming a registered MRI or CT technologist. The program is competency based, utilizing student learning outcome assessment plans to ensure graduate quality.
Our mission is to develop entry-level Magnetic Resonance and Computed Tomography technologists whose expertise will meet the needs of the community they serve, and whose academic education and clinical experience will provide a foundation for lifelong learning.
- The student will acquire and develop the education and skills necessary to perform as an entry-level magnetic resonance or computed tomography technologist.
- The student will develop learning habits that will demonstrate a commitment to professional and personal growth by participation in professional activities and continuing education.
- The student will understand and apply methods for effective problem solving, critical thinking, and communication skills.
- The program will graduate entry-level magnetic resonance or computed tomography technologists.
The CT/MRI Program does not participate in the Federal Financial Aid Program.
Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers - American Heart Association
The School of Diagnostic Imaging requires all students to be currently registered in BLS for Healthcare Providers by the American Heart Association. Information on AHA approved CPR courses can be found at www.americanheart.org.
Important information regarding the potential workplace hazards of metallic implants or foreign bodies in MRI students:
A Magnetic Resonance Imaging environment can pose a serious risk of injury to anyone with certain metallic implants or devices. To ensure that all students are not at risk, everyone who enters an MRI environment must have up-to-date safety documentation.
Hazards that are associated with the electromagnetic field include, but are not limited to: missile effect accidents, and dislodgement or excessive heating of a ferromagnetic object. Missile effect refers to the magnetic field ability to attract ferromagnetic objects into the MRI scanner with considerable force. Common objects associated with these incidents include oxygen cylinders, floor buffers, IV poles, carts and wheelchairs. Allowing such items into the MR environment can result in injury to the patient, student, or technologist.
