Cross-Sectional Anatomy

RADI 230
2 CR

This course presents an introduction of human anatomy from the transverse, sagittal and coronal planes, providing the student an understanding of anatomy in three dimensions. The course is designed for the second-year radiography student as a means to enhance their ability to visualize the appearance and the relationships of anatomical structures in the planar sections. This ability will aid the student with patient positioning skills to accurately demonstrate structures on traditional diagnostic images, as well as a better understanding of anatomy as demonstrated through the sectional imaging modalities of CT and MRI.

Prerequisites: admission to the Radiography Program; and a "C" in RADI 220, 221, 222, 223, BIOL 201 and 202
