Overview

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the fastest growing modality in diagnostic imaging. There are now thousands of MRI facilities across the United States and around the world, employing huge numbers of technologists. The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists has, with the help of experts in the MRI and educational fields, devised a multiple choice examination that is intended to ensure that all technologists have the required level of knowledge to practice MRI safely and competently. Carolyn Kaut and William Faulkener, experts in the field of MRI education, have compiled this book to help students prepare for the registry examination. The questions follow the structure of the syllabus and are intended to help readers test their understanding of the subject and identify any gaps in their knowledge. The book is extremely comprehensive, covering all the aspects of the examination, including patient care and safety, imaging procedures, pulse sequences and data acquisition, and imaging artifacts and options.

Covers content specifications of the ARRT exam, incl. data acquisition & processing/patient care & safety/etc.

    Don't plan on using this book on the PC

    First I was expecting a little more than just questions. I was looking for explanations for all the questions as well. There are a few but that doesn't really help if you need to have a couple sources to get ready for the registry. The other problem that I have is that on the PC, you can't look at the choices for the answers. Makes this useless on the PC. Also, if you buy the book you can check off the answers that you want and check them later. This is not possible for the Nook or PC. For a 35$ book, I think this should be available and it should work across all platforms.

    On a side note.....Make sure that you have the credit card info up to date or you won't be able to read it on the PC at all. A bit of an issue if you lose your card or have it stolen
