WHAT WE NEED

Excellent caretakers who love technology

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR

When people need an MRI their first thought is likely of the machine itself. It’s an impressive machine but it only works as well as the person running it. An MRI procedure is successful when the MRI technologist can appropriately screen patients, pleasantly prepare them for the exam, and competently handle the hands-on care needed. Even with all the technology in the world, good health care comes down to the person administering care.

 

Do you have experience working in radiology and with MRI procedures? Are you good at working with patients and putting them at ease? Can you accurately follow procedures? If so, we have a special place to put your skills to work. 

WHAT YOU WILL DO

  • Screen patients for any metal prior to all MRI procedures in order to assure the patient's safety.
  • Consult with radiologists and referring physician prior to the patient's procedure in order to assure exams are appropriately tailored to the patient's needs.
  • Properly position the patient on the scan table utilizing the appropriate coil and complete the procedure utilizing established protocols in order to provide a high quality diagnostic procedure.
  • Document the patient's clinical history, prepare the MRI folder, and accurately log every exam, including scanning parameters, in order to provide clinical correlation of exams ordered and accurate patient records.
  • Perform venipuncture, utilizing universal precautions and OSHA guidelines, in order to administer contrast materials.

WHAT IT TAKES TO SUCCEED
