To me, those areas don't sound related at all and I'm not sure that PT skills would help with the MRI job.

From what I could find you'd at least need an Associated degree in Radiology and then specialized training https://study.com/articles/MRI_Technician_Licensure_and_Credentialing_Information.html for MRIs.

Licensing for both Radiology and MRI techs varies by state and https://www.radiology-schools.com/radiology-schools-state/arizona.html has more details.

I like to believe that you can connect these two forms but you need to really sit down and think how can they translate to one another. You can say that it has given you great communication skills that will be needed for both jobs.
However, Im not that familiar with MRI tech as I was only a PT tech but I think I learned many valuable skills doing that job that I have translated to a numerous amount of other jobs skills wise.

But if youre looking to become a mri tech because you were a pt tech, that is not possible you need to get certified as an MRI tech for that.

Emma’s Answer

Becoming a certified Physical Therapy Technician (PTT) by the end of your junior year can provide you with a valuable foundation in healthcare, including patient interaction and familiarity with medical protocols. While PTT and MRI Technologist roles are distinct, they share some transferable skills and healthcare knowledge. You can potentially connect these roles in the future by pursuing additional education and certification specific to MRI technology. This transition would require completing an accredited MRI technology program and obtaining the necessary certifications, but your background as a PTT can be an asset, showcasing your healthcare experience and patient care skills when pursuing a career in medical imaging as an MRI Technologist.
