Abdominal Radiology

by Hetal Verma, MD

Whether you are a medical student, resident, radiology technologist, or practicing physician, it will serve you well to gain a better understanding of radiology. Abdominal radiology, in particular, is frequently ordered. The first few times looking at a radiology image can be overwhelming. For this reason, it is useful to develop a practical framework to systematically review different types of imaging, and gradually you will become more efficient. More important at this stage is not missing life-threatening diagnoses, such as free air or an ectopic pregnancy. Common findings are also important to identify, such as ileus or small bowel obstruction. This course covers abdominal and pelvic imaging that includes basic radiographic anatomy, common findings of abdominal and pelvic pathology, and basic fluoroscopy.

organization of the MRI section is confusing. It would have been better to show the definitions and the pictures at the same time...instead of using terms not previously introduced...and then switching to the definitions, but now the viewer can't see the image which demonstrates the terms. Instead, I had to look up the terms on my own and then I could better understand the lecture. I also had to spend time going back and forth with the slides and transcript/video to better understand. In short, the organization of this section could have been done better.
