MRI Registry Review: Tech to Tech Questions and Answers is a comprehensive question and answer book designed to help scanning technologists pass their MRI Board certification examinations, particularly the ‘Registry’ and Continuing Qualifications Requirements (CQR) exams administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). The book provides clear explanations and acc­urate answers to numerous multiple-choice questions (MCQs) similar to those found in ARRT exams, as well as study tips and additional information on many key topics.

The questions are organized into four sections aligned with ARRT content specifications, covering patient care during an MRI, the physical principles of MRI, data acquisition, and imaging procedures. Written for MRI students and working technologists alike, the book is the perfect complement to MRI Physics: Tech to Tech Questions and Answers - the author’s guide that explains difficult MRI concepts and topics with a clear and straightforward approach. Offering a wide variety of questions and succinct yet thorough explanations, this valuable study and review guide:

  • Covers the topics technologists need to know in order to pass ARRT exams
  • Offers exam preparation and test-taking suggestions and advice
  • Groups questions together by topic to allow readers to focus on specific areas needing more attention
  • Includes tables, figures, cross-vendor terminology lists, and illustrations that reinforce key points and demonstrate application to practice
  • Links sections to corresponding chapters in the companion MRI Physics: Tech to Tech Explanations

MRI Registry Review: Tech to Tech Questions and Answers is an indispensable study tool for students and trainees preparing for the ARRT or equivalent advanced MRI placement exams, as well as for technologists needing to re-certify or take CQR exams.
