Intro to imaging review from a total beginner
By Barbara S. on 29. September 2019 for Introduction to Imaging

Videos were very professional, to the point and included very helpful graphics. The MRI overview was still a little challenging for a beginner student, especially the bit about T1 and T2 images.

By Tiia S. on 13. February 2019 for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Not very informative. She seems to be nervous and runs very quickly through the slides.

By Elzard S. on 04. October 2018 for Ultrasound Imaging and Terminology

Dr. Verma is very clear in her explanations. I wish there were more videos on Ultrasound. I would like to learn about parasternal long, parasternal short, subxiphoid imaging of the heart. Thank you!

Good for beginners... Explanation from scratch.. Easy language... Explanation with imagery examples is a highlight
