MRI Tech Travel Jobs
MRI technicians are responsible for capturing images on MRI scanners to diagnose patients. Patients are injected with dyes that will work with the magnetic energy to contrast the images on the scanner's screen, making the organs and other internal body parts easier to see. MRI techs follow a physician's orders regarding which images to capture, as well as determining if more images are needed.

MRI technicians are not always required to have a license or certification, but many employers prefer it. Certification is offered through the American Registry of Magnetic Resonance Imagining Technologists (ARMRIT) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Both of these organizations require the passing of an exam.
