I love it
By Delaram A. on 08. December 2021 for Introduction to Imaging

The lecturer tries to make background and base for further pathologies, and it's exactly what I was looking for

Radiology rating
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".

Very good lecture
By Alaena A. on 02. October 2021 for Doppler Ultrasound

Very clear and easy to follow lectures. Elucidates the slides and demonstrates with the pointer.
