ISMRT’s MR Technologists Email Community

SMRT MR Technologists Email Community

The ISMRT manages an email-based discussion group for all members of the MR community called ISMRT MR Technologists Community

The purpose of this group is to foster open discussion of professional and scientific issues related to the field of MRI.

Membership in this group is through application. To be eligible for membership, you must work in a field related to MRI. Although the group is primarily intended for MR technologists/radiographers, other MR related health professionals and scientists can be members. The ISMRT is primarily a professional society. Our membership includes many health professionals and researchers. It also includes educators, trainers and other individuals who work with MR.

PLEASE NOTE: Postings in this group do not represent any official position or opinion of the ISMRT. We cannot make claims regarding the nature or appropriateness of the opinions offered by members on the group, or whether they are experienced, professionally licensed, certified or otherwise credentialed. Postings are not intended to either constitute or substitute for in-person, professional medical or clinical advice or consultation on general techniques or specific problems. People who want to utilize any form of MR or any of the methods discussed on the group for any purpose whatsoever should not rely on the information they attained from the group alone, but should qualify themselves by face-to-face interactive professional training and supervised experience.

This group is provided as a service to the MR community. All MR community members are welcomed (unless previously terminated) to the group. ISMRT monitors the community for inappropriate postings. Each member of the community is responsible for their own actions and postings on the group and must comply with the below stated Rules of User Conduct.
