We are the largest MR facility in the Southern Hemisphere with a multitude of imaging equipment, including 2 x 1.5T Siemens Sonatas, 1 x 2T Bruker and 1 x 4T Siemens/Bruker whole body systems, and a number of high field small bore systems.  Our staff include radiographers, physicists, medical doctors, neurologists, neuropsychologist, nurses and a myriad of Ph.D. and Masters students.

We have developed a series of post graduate courses aimed at radiographers wanting a formal qualification in MRI, all delivered electronically, with no on campus component.

Grad Certificate in Mag Res Tech (MRT): year one
Post grad diploma in MRT: year two
Master of MRT: year three

We attract students from around the globe, and our students network very well via our on line (weekly) tutorials and group study projects.

Self Study Registry Review

Medical Imaging Consultants, Inc., of West Paterson, NJ

We are delighted to offer the only comprehensive, professional home study review courses available in MRI and CT. The programs are ideal for technologists preparing for the ARRT registry exams. We stand behind these programs by guaranteeing that technologists who successfully complete either program will pass the ARRT exam or receive a complete tuition refund. These programs have received strong institutional endorsements by equipment manufacturers contrast media industries as well as professional organizations.

The MR Registry Review Program consists of 12 modular chapters, each containing 20-35 pages of descriptive text, images, illustrations and summaries which strictly adhere to the Content Specifications for the Advanced Level Exam in MRI published by the ARRT. In addition, each module concludes with a thought-provoking 40 question quiz. The program begins with a basic review of the physics of MRI and then goes on to cover spatial localization, image reconstruction, instrumentation, advanced imaging methods including fast imaging techniques and MR angiography, the patient exam, essential anatomy, imaging strategies, safety and image artifacts. Technologists can earn up to 24 Category A Continuing Education credits in this program. The entire course requires only 20 hours of study time.

The CT Registry Review Program consists of 8 modules, each containing 25-45 pages. The CT program allows technologists to earn up to 16 Category A credits and requires 14 hours of study time. The program is structured and is conducted in the same manner as our MRI review course.

After completing each quiz, the answer sheet is returned to Medical Imaging Consultants for confidential grading. In response, the student receives customized feedback on the complete results of each quiz. Students also receive Study Guidelines which offer detailed explanations to the answers of every quiz question and which use the quiz results to direct the student to areas within the program which require further study. Medical Imaging Consultants will automatically register the credits you earn from these programs with the ASRT if you are enrolled in the ASRT's ECE program.

The primary advantages of these homestudy programs are that students can study at their own pace and convenience, they receive detailed feedback on the progress of their study efforts, they are not required to take leave from work or use up vacation or weekend time, and the programs do not include any irrelevant or highly technical information - they only present information relevant to the ARRT exam. Furthermore, the complete program tuition can be less than the fee for a 2-day seminar program and requires no additional funds for travel, hotel and meal expenses normally associated with traditional seminar programs.

Our programs have received peer review by physicians and technologists, have received ASRT Category A accreditation and have been developed by expert educators and graphic designers to give you the most professional program available in MRI and CT.

We offer discounted tuition rates to technologists taking the next ARRT exam or who enroll in groups of 2 or more. To receive your free detailed information kit call Philip A. Femano, Ph.D. at 800-589-5685, or send him mail at
