Hello Cool Cats,
It’s me again, your student teaching bear, Thunder! I spent the day with Mr. Canlapan and learned about operating the MRI machine. Have any of you had to have an MRI before? I know Mrs. Crosby did! Read below for a little info about Mr. Canlapan’s job.
I work in a Colorado Springs hospital as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technologist. I operate the machine in obtaining patient’s MRI images. My job served diverse patients from infants to seniors in the community. This type of technology is very important in diagnosing or finding different types of diseases. MRI scans are performed on brains, neck, back, knees, liver, and many more body parts. MRI can now be used to see inside the brain and how it functions.
I’m off to my next job!
