Medical Imaging Part-time Studies Course

School of Health Sciences

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

Through online readings, activities, interactions and instructor support, this course focuses on MR imaging techniques, procedures and clinical applications of the thorax, abdomen and pelvis. This course introduces key technologist controlled parameters and pulse sequences. The emphasis is placed on patient positioning, pulse sequence optimization, image quality, and the use of contrast media. This course also details relational anatomy as it pertains to MR Imaging as well as common pathologies. The majority of the course focuses on equipment, patient positioning techniques, image optimization and common usage of contrast media. Indications for MR imaging are covered from the perspective of the best possible protocol sequences and imaging planes needed to outline pathology of thorax, abdomen and pelvis.
