This course is divided into three parts, Thorax, Abdomen and Pelvis, and the Musculoskeletal System. It includes CT techniques, scanners, principals and protocols. It describes normal and abnormal findings. Showing correlation on CT images along with other imaging tools. It discusses approach, contrast agents, interpretation, artifacts, radiation doses and normal and abnormal findings in the abdominal and pelvic organs. Part three discusses the uses of CT in trauma, non-trauma, and incidental findings.
A comprehensive assessment of chest radiography. From plain film radiographs to contrast enhanced CT, MRI, and Nuclear Medicine studies. It gives explanations of many common and not common diseases of the chest. It divides the chest in to different aspects from large airway disease to the chest wall. Every chapter gives a description of the normal anatomy, variants, signs to look for, pathology and a description of how to best visualize the disease.
This course covers anatomy, physiology, abnormalities, special procedures(CT, MRI…) and which exams best benefit the patient and their condition. Those that work taking plain films will realize what an important role they play as the imaging starting point for virtually every disease.
Radiation is the primary basis of all radiology departments. Ionizing radiation is potentially life altering and fatal. This course will refresh you in its easy to follow format. It covers everything from basic concepts to history of radiation biology and onto relationships of the body with radiation. Most importantly it covers how to protect ourselves and our patients from being exposed to unnecessary radiation.
This course gives a working knowledge of the basic principals and practice of medical imaging. It aids in the understanding of diagnostic radiographic images and the role that imaging plays in disease diagnosis. Each chapter describes normal and abnormal findings, and correlations of the disease in other modalities. The last three chapters are an introduction to Nuclear Medicine, Mammography, and Angiography, the benefits to these modalities, and the important role of each.
As the time and technologies change so must the ways of mammographic imaging. This course will present the technologist with an account of what is being done to improve mammography. It gives the technologist a detailed explanation of digital mammography and the different ways that the changes are being approached, studies of the progress and how to implement the new technologies. Issue for consideration.
This course is intended to assist the mammographer. It informs us of the history of mammography. It describes technical considerations. It describes breast anatomy, pathology, physiology and in depth details in respect to biopsies and the responsibilities of the technologist before during and after the procedure. It leads us into the future with an introduction to the many innovative techniques being developed to detect breast cancer earlier, therefore saving more lives.
