Catalog Description:
Untitled document
In this course, students will study cross-sectional anatomy of all body systems, recognition of anatomical landmarks, and all aspects of radiographic pathology, including normal variations and abnormal changes due to diseases and trauma. The course will introduce etiology of disease and pathophysiologic disorders that compromise health and wellness. Variations in characteristic radiologic appearances as well as correlations of radiographic manifestations using multiple imaging modalities for clinical diagnosis and treatment will be discussed. Students will research pathology as it relates to imaging and present an oral and written literature review.

Prerequisites/Corequisites:
Concurrent enrollement in RADT 71E
