XRT 215 - Sectional Anatomy

1 Credit

Designed to provide students in the diagnostic imaging sciences a basic understanding of three dimensional structure relationships of normal anatomy. Transverse, cornal, sagittal orientation of visceral anatomy of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis will be presented with emphasis in the transverse plane. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance images will be used as supplemental learning tools. One class hour.

Prerequisites: XRT 153 with a grade of C or better and BIO 142, or permission of the program director.
