Instructor: Michael Price, Michael Beland, Edward Walsh and Department of Radiology, Modality Technologists (Radiography, Fluoroscopy, CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine)

Medicine)
Semester:Spring

Credits: 4

 Prerequisites: ELE564/565 or permission of instructor

Catalog description

This course covers advanced topics in diagnostic and clinical imaging modalities with an emphasis on clinically relevant modalities. Modalities include radiography, fluoroscopy, computed tomography, nuclear imaging, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound and positron emission tomography.

Course Goals & Outcomes

Upon completion students are expected:

  • To explain the physical principles of imaging techniques covered in the course;
  • To examine images and formulate the diagnosis;
  • To describe the protocol of procedures during clinical imaging sessions.

Course Description

Instruction will consist of didactic lectures accompanied by practicum directed by technologists within the Department of Radiology at Rhode Island Hospital. Practicum will consist of an after hour equipment demonstration and clinical procedure presentation as well as a directed shadowing experience to be held during clinical hours. Within each of two weeks students will spend 6 hours of lecture time and 4 hours of practicum time in hospital
