Course Title

DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING


Summary

This course is designed to cover basic concepts as well as to delve into the intricacies of radiographic diagnosis.

The student will gain an understanding and use of radiation safety practices in diagnostic imaging as well as give insight into other imaging modalities. Each aspect of making and interpreting radiographs from a physic/technique basis is covered. Students will be exposed to concepts and techniques in radiographic diagnosis related to small animal musculoskeletal disease, abdominal radiography, thoracic radiography, and spinal radiography. Specific anatomic discussion is included in each module and illustrated to help the participant 'see' the anatomic structure on the radiograph.

Module 1, Radiation: Concepts and History, and Module 2, Radiographic Image Production, are available to licensed, registered, or certified veterinary technicians.
