Protected Titles

Medical radiation technologists (MRTs) and electroneurophysiology technologists (ENPs) are governed by the Health Professions Act (HPA) and the Medical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Technologists Profession Regulation (the Regulation) in Alberta. As per this legislation, no one may use these titles or their abbreviations in Alberta without being a regulated member of the Alberta College of Medical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Technologists.

Regulated College members who hold current registration may use the specialty titles and abbreviations appropriate to their specialty as listed below:

    • Radiological technology: radiological technologist, medical radiation technologist, medical radiation technologist (radiological), MRT, MRT (R)
    • Nuclear medicine technology: nuclear medicine technologist, medical radiation technologist, medical radiation technologist (nuclear medicine), MRT, MRT (NM)
    • Radiation therapy: radiation therapist, medical radiation technologist, medical radiation technologist (therapy), MRT, MRT (T)
    • Magnetic resonance technology: magnetic resonance technologist, medical radiation technologist, medical radiation technologist (magnetic resonance), MRT, MRT (MR)
    • Electroneurophysiology technology: electroneurophysiology technologist, electroencephalography technologist, ENP, EEGT

Members who are registered in more than one specialty may add the specialties to the end of the MRT abbreviation; for example, MRT (R)(T) or MRT (NM)(MR).

Only regulated members of the College who are currently registered may use the titles and abbreviations listed above. If you resign your registration or change your status to non-practicing associate, you are unable to use the specialty titles or abbreviations until you reinstate your registration.

If you have any questions regarding the use of protected titles, please feel welcome to contact the College by email at registration@acmdtt.com or by phone at 780.487.6130.
