Introduction to Imaging

by Hetal Verma, MD

Imaging is everywhere in medicine. The number of imaging tests ordered daily is enormous, and it continues to climb rapidly as new indications and imaging modalities are revealed. To understand radiology, you will need an initial understanding of the basics of imaging techniques. You will also need to know the risks and possible side effects of radiation. This course covers the common uses for different imaging techniques, how to decipher radiographs, and how to find out more about the differences in acquisition, cost, and use of each of the common radiology modalities. The course also addresses how CT and MRI may be manipulated to provide the best images when addressing a specific clinical query, a set of knowledge that may spare you and the radiology department an extended phone call on a busy day.

By Baran K. on 02. December 2021 for Introduction to Imaging

Absolutely saved my life I watched the intro before a class and it made it so much easier in lecture Watched all the others right after the lecture Very detailed

Definition for T1 and T2 is problematic and misleading.
By Alaena A. on 02. October 2021 for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Slide 9 is problematic, specifically for the explanation of T2. "Perpendicular" is not a very good term. There is no aforementioned information that would help explain what T2 is that is given in this lecture. What should have been said if this was to be avoided would be, "Beyond the scope of this lecture".
