Full course description
Our team of board-certified radiologists, cardiologists, surgeons, neurologists, and other specialists will guide students through clinically relevant anatomy using diagnostic imaging. All body systems are covered in this comprehensive course, including musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, renal, and hepatic, in addition to others.
The basic principles behind imaging modalities, image acquisition, and radiation safety are covered to encourage learners to consider how tissue structure and function apply to anatomy and the interpretation of diagnostic images.
The goal of this course is to enhance veterinary students' anatomical knowledge and learning with the use of diagnostic imaging. Students will also learn to identify the normal radiographic anatomy of common domestic species.
This course is equivalent to one elective credit hour. It's a self-paced course. You are expected to spend 14-16 hours finishing it. See your academic institution about using this course for credit.
What You'll Learn
- Identify normal clinically-relevant anatomical structures on a radiograph
- Appreciate the breadth of normal anatomical variants in veterinary radiographs
- Explain how a tissue's structural composition impacts the generation of a diagnostic image
- Compare and contrast different imaging modalities as they relate to tissue structure and function
- Identify the safety concerns surrounding medical imaging
