About the SMRT
A World of Knowledge for MR Technologists and Radiographers
SMRT – A Global Community
The Section for Magnetic Resonance Technologists (SMRT) of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) is the leading non-profit organization that provides an international forum for education, information and research in magnetic resonance for technologists and radiographers throughout the world.
The SMRT was established by technologists, clinicians and scientists of the ISMRM as a forum for technologists to share their expertise and educational resources, with a common goal of improving healthcare for people worldwide.
As an organization, we are committed to promoting communication and the dissemination of cutting-edge MR developments. The objective of the SMRT is to advance education and training, while striving to promote a high level of knowledge and professionalism in the field of MR technology and radiography.

Join a Lifetime of Learning
The Section for Magnetic Resonance Technologists (SMRT) is the recognized leader in providing education to MR technologists and radiographers throughout the world.
The SMRT is recognized by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) as a Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism (RCEEM), and acts as an accrediting body through a continuing education system called Source for Magnetic Resonance Technologists Education (SMaRT Ed) Credits. You may download RCEEM accreditation application materials here [PDF].
Many SMRT programs are also recognized as Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities for the Australian Institute of Radiography (AIR), the New Zealand Institute of Medical Radiation Technology (NZIMRT) and the UK College of Radiographers (CPD NOW).
Please contact SMRT if you would like your country’s professional institution to recognize our CPD activities.
