MRT

Master in Radiological Techniques (MRT)

Duration  : 3 years (Six Semesters)

Eligibility : BRT/BPT/BOT

 

Generally, a master's degree is the terminal degree for radiology technologists, commonly known as radiologic technologists. However, a master's degree is available for radiologist assistants and is the next step for radiologic technologists looking to advance their careers in the field. Under the direction of a radiologist, radiologic technologists and radiologist assistants work with patients and operate equipment for such modalities as magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography.

Master's degree programs for radiologist assistants are intended to prepare professionals to bridge the gap between radiologic technologists and physicians. Radiologist assistants play a significant part in patient interactions; they may perform designated radiology procedures currently done by radiologists and conduct initial interpretations of diagnostic scans.

Master's programs for radiologist assistants generally require a 2-year commitment and are designed for professionals who are already working as registered radiologic technologists. Coursework focuses on computer technology and clinical research. Curricula often include anatomy and pharmacology courses, as well as on-site clinical work.

Educational Prerequisites

In order to gain acceptance to a radiologist assistant master's degree program, students must have worked a minimum number of years as radiologic technologists, usually three, and hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited university. In addition, schools may require letters of recommendation, and candidates must be registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

Program Coursework

Depending on the program, coursework may include online and on-campus learning, in addition to on-site practice at a health facility. Courses are advanced and assume a prior knowledge of radiology and relevant equipment. Courses may cover the following:

  • Health physics
  • Patient assessment
  • Interventional procedures
  • Radiobiology
  • Pathophysiology
