This is the first in a series of two courses that will provide the student with considerations related to routine imaging techniques of the central nervous system (CNS) and musculoskeletal system (MSK). Students will explore the signal characteristics of normal anatomy and compare it to common pathologies. Emphasis will be placed on tissue characteristics, protocol options, and positioning considerations.

Prerequisites: admission to the MRI Program or academic program approval and completion of MRI 200, 260 and 241 with a grade of “C” or better
