MR Technologist

You are here

A trained, licensed MR technologist is available to run scans. Here are some important considerations:

  • The MR technologist charge rate is $75.00/hour ($80/hour starting in June 2017). This rate will be charged to all studies requesting a technologist based on the actual time the technologist spends on the study (which can differ from the actual scanning time).
  • The MR technologist charge is in addition to the 3T scanner charge.
  • Training of new 3T MR operators will be free of charge to the PI.
  • Technologists will normally be available Mondays & Tuesdays from 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Wednesday - Friday 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Some flexibility for evening times is available and should be requested more than two weeks in advance. Currently, weekend coverage is not available.
  • CMRR will use best efforts to accommodate MR technologist requests during normal working hours. Please request a technologist at least two weeks in advance. For short-notice situations, contact the CMRR front desk at 6-2001.
  • CMRR will use best efforts to avoid rescheduling studies if a technologist becomes unavailable due to illness, family emergency, etc.
  • The CMRR 3T calendar now shows the status of a technologist request: A yellow border around a session means a technologist is requested, a green border means the technologist is confirmed, a red border means the technologist is unavailable.
  • PI’s will receive an email when a technologist request is confirmed or denied. CMRR’s goal is to confirm requests within 2 business days.
  • If a CMRR technologist is unavailable, it is the PI's responsibility to find an alternative person to operate the scanner or change the appointment to a time when a technologist is available.
