    Exploring Medical Imaging

    This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to the medical imaging sciences, including a brief history of medicine and a comprehensive exploration of how medical imaging has evolved into the multidisciplinary profession it is today. Topics include basic radiation protection and radiobiology, human diversity, health records, health information management,professional ethics, and basic medical terminology.
  • MI-305

    Interventional Radiology I

    Basic concepts of interventional radiology (IR) will be discussed including vascular anatomy and pathology, as well as imaging techniques commonly utilized in IR. In addition to concepts, the imaging methods, supplies, equipment, and devices supporting diagnostic and interventional image-guided vascular procedures are introduced. Vascular surgery correlation with surgical options will be introduced the course.
  • MI-306

    Interventional Radiology II

    Basic concepts of neuro interventional radiology (NIR) will be discussed including neurovascular anatomy and pathology, as well as imaging techniques commonly utilized in NIR. In addition to concepts, the imaging methods, supplies, equipment, and devices supporting diagnostic and interventional image-guided neuro-vascular procedures are introduced. Vascular surgery correlation with surgical options will be introduced in the course. Prerequisite: MI 305
  • MI-307

    Interventional Radiology III

    Basic concepts of non-vascular Interventional Radiology (NVIR) will be discussed including non-vascular anatomy and pathology, as well as imaging techniques commonly utilized in NVIR. In addition to concepts, the imaging methods, supplies, equipment, and devices supporting diagnostic and interventional image guided non-vascular procedures are introduced. Surgical correlation with surgical options will be introduced in the course. Prerequisite: MI 306
  • MI-310

    Breast Imaging I

    Basic concepts of breast imaging will be discussed including anatomy and pathology, as well as imaging techniques commonly utilized in mammography. In addition to concepts, the imaging methods, supplies, equipment, and devices supporting mammographic procedures are introduced.
  • MI-311

    Breast Imaging II

    Basic knowledge of routine breast imaging will be expanded in this course to include knowledge of advanced positioning and additional equipment used in breast imaging. Students will move outside of routine screenings (if not already done) and into diagnostic imaging. An introduction to breast biopsies will be given as well as an overview of 3D breast imaging. Emphasis will be placed on digital imaging as a whole including PACS, DICOM, and how digital images are obtained. Prerequisite: MI 310
  • MI-312

    Breast Imaging III

    In the final semester of the Breast Imaging program students will become familiar with the various requirements of the ACR and the MQSA as well as insurance requirements for both routine screening and diagnostic imaging. Emphasis will be placed on registry review material throughout the semester in order to prepare the student for the ARRT registry exam. Prerequisite: MI 311
  • MI-330

    Radiation Protection & Biology

    This course explores the principles and methods of radiation protection, health physics units, measurement, and dose-limiting regulations for occupationally and non-occupationally exposed individuals; radiation surveys; techniques and decontamination methods; monitoring of radioactive waste, radiation dose measurements, and radionuclide accountability; and special topics, including precautions with brachytherapy patients, with patients receiving therapeutic amounts of radionuclides and in management of accidentally contaminated individuals. This course will also serve as an overview of the genetic and somatic effects of ionizing radiation. Mechanisms of interaction from the subcellular level to the organism will be presented. Risk versus benefit of radiation exposure to occupational workers as well as patients will be discussed. The emphasis of the course will be an understanding of the theory of radiobiology and how this translates into radiation protection practices.
