You will gain an understanding of the working principles of each modality: magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT scan) and X-ray radiographs, as well as how an image is obtained. An integral part of this course is the examination of numerous radiographs of normal and abnormal human anatomy. You will learn how to identify the deviation between the two caused by a disease.

 Upon completion of the study, you will:

  • Become familiar with basic descriptive terminology used in the various imaging techniques.
  • Recognize normal anatomy and deviations from it caused by a pathology.
  • Understand the general principles of interventional radiology (diagnostic and therapeutic).
  • Learn how to read and interpret the radiographic images.
  • Develop an understanding of the relative risks related to the different imaging modalities.
