DMS 105 - Introduction to Cross-Sectional Anatomy for Ultrasonography
2 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours
Prerequisites: Acceptance to the DMS Program, BIO 161 , BIO 162 , ENG 101 , MAT 108 and PHY 100
Co-requisites: DMS 102
This course considers the human anatomy through the evaluation of sagittal, transverse and coronal body sections. Organs and structures of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and extremities are presented and correlated with pictorial sections obtained through cadaver dissection. Cadaver pictorial sections are correlated with ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computerized Axial Tomography (CAT) images. 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 the cross-sectional anatomical structures within the abdominal and thoracic cavity, female pelvis and the cranium.
- Describe the gross anatomy and position of the heart as seen in the anatomical position.
- Identify the heart chambers in cross-section.
- Apply cross-sectional techniques when scanning the abdominal organs.
- Associate the planes of the body with the position of the transducer.
- Compare the cross-sectional planes of abdominal organs to images created by MRI, CAT and ultrasound.
- Compare the cross-sectional planes of the heart chambers to images created by ultrasound.
- Gross anatomy of anatomical structures within the cranium, thoracic cavity, pelvis and the abdominal cavity
- The planes of the body and terms relative to cross-sectional anatomy as applied to ultrasound imaging
- Cross-sectional images of the head, thoracic cavity and the abdominal cavity
- Sonographic images of the head, thoracic cavity, abdominal cavity and of the heart chambers
- Related CAT and MRI images of anatomy in cross-section
