MRI 202 - Cross-Sectional Anatomy for Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Credits: 2
2 Lecture Hours

Prerequisites: Acceptance into MRI Program
Co-requisites: MRI 201  and MRI 203  

This is a course in magnetic resonance cross-sectional anatomy for certified technologists utilizing medical cross-sectional radiographs to identify cranial, thoracic, abdominal and musculoskeletal systems. Each system will be demonstrated in a transverse, sagittal, coronal and oblique magnetic resonance image. This course requires a per credit health career fee; check the tuition and fee schedule for the current rate.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  1. Identify cranium and face sectional anatomy and MRI images.
  2. Identify features of typical vertebrae and regions of the salivary glands, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, trachea, arteries, veins, thorax cage, mediastinum and abdominal region.
  3. Identify the pericardial sac, heart wall and arteries and veins.
  4. Determine the blood flow through the heart on a MRI image.
  5. Locate all vascular vessels within all locations of human anatomy body regions.
  6. Interpret abdominal functions and organs in relationship to each other on MRI images.
  7. Assess pelvis structures and reproductive disorders.
  8. Identify all upper and lower extremity MRI images of the human body.
  9. Scrutinize necessary MRI scanning sagittal planes, transverse planes, coronal planes and off-axis sectional anatomy images of the human anatomic body sections.
Listed Topics
