Courses

ISC 315

ADVANCED CROSS-SECTIONAL ANATOMY I

See Details

Advanced Sectional Anatomy I will discuss anatomical structures of the upper and lower extremities, abdomen, and pelvis located in an array of multiple imaging planes and modalities.  Characteristic appearances of anatomical structures will be discussed as it applies to Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and Ultrasound.  Pathology and physiological aspects of major anatomical structures will be addressed and reviewed through identification exercises and assignments when applicable.
