Why study the Master of Magnetic Resonance Technology?

This program allows students with some experience in magnetic resonance to acquire advanced knowledge. Students are trained in new techniques which are not yet part of standard clinical practice. Students will be in a position to embark on projects that make innovative use of magnetic resonance; to assess the impact of such innovation on the clinical utility of the modality; and to assess the needs of a radiography practice, and the ability of equipment from various manufacturers to meet these needs. The program consists of core courses, electives and a research component.

For students studying via flexible delivery, access to a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner is required for the research component of this award.
