Veterinarians who want to pursue further education in their field can benefit greatly from magnetic resonance imaging or MRI training. This not only allows a person to expand his or her expertise in animal health but also makes him more desirable for hiring institutions, since MRI technicians are widely sought-after in the competitive industry of e-veterinary medicine.


There are several Universities that offer MRI training for further education and classroom training is usually a part of the program. Training inside the classroom typically involves lectures on theories and other fundamental and even advanced topics on animal MRI. From introductions, to safety procedures, up to advancements in MRI and radiology in general, students are given the chance to expand their knowledge on MRI. These courses on animal MRI are often supplemented by laboratory sessions where students are taught how to safely operate MRI machines.

At the end of the course, students are given certificates of completion and depending on the institution they are in, they will be awarded merits depending on their performance inside the classroom throughout the period they have participated in the program.

After the course, students will have to register and get their license at the American Registry of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technologists (ARMRIT).
