Why study the Graduate Certificate in Magnetic Resonance and Positron Emission Tomography

Medical imaging is developing at a rapid pace and hybrid medical imaging systems are becoming more commonplace. With the blend of high-resolution Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and the physiological data of Positron Emission Tomography (PET), MR-PET is making quite an impression in medical diagnosis. The operation of this new hybrid system requires an understanding of both the MRI and PET stand-alone technologies.

The Graduate Certificate in MRPET is designed for professionals such as nuclear medicine technologists and diagnostic radiographers who require a more in-depth knowledge of the theoretical fundamentals and operational considerations of a hybrid MRI scanner and PET scanner.

An exciting feature of this program is the one-week on-campus attendance, where students are able to operate MRI scanners, and practice scanning on human volunteers.
