MRI 202 - Cross-Sectional Anatomy for Magnetic Resonance Imaging
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.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Identify cranium and face sectional anatomy and MRI images.
- Identify features of typical vertebrae and regions of the salivary glands, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, trachea, arteries, veins, thorax cage, mediastinum and abdominal region.
- Identify the pericardial sac, heart wall and arteries and veins.
- Determine the blood flow through the heart on a MRI image.
- Locate all vascular vessels within all locations of human anatomy body regions.
- Interpret abdominal functions and organs in relationship to each other on MRI images.
- Assess pelvis structures and reproductive disorders.
- Identify all upper and lower extremity MRI images of the human body.
- Scrutinize necessary MRI scanning sagittal planes, transverse planes, coronal planes and off-axis sectional anatomy images of the human anatomic body sections.
- Head and neck sectional anatomy
- Thorax sectional anatomy
- Abdomen sectional anatomy
- Pelvis sectional anatomy
- Extremities and articulations sectional anatomy
Program faculty evaluate teaching resources and materials each year. Students will be provided with current state-of-the-art resources in class. Additionally, students will be instructed which required textbooks to purchase that contain current technical information
