CT: Anatomy and Associated Pathology
This program is entirely devoted to anatomy and selected associated pathologic processes. Clinical imaging examples are used to provide analysis, and due to sustained interest in vascular imaging, a special section on hemodynamics is included to augment the program.
This anatomy/pathology review explores timeframes in which CT evolved, from the early 1970s to the current time. The anatomy that was most focused upon by systems of a particular era are shown and the types of pathological conditions these systems were capable of identifying are discussed. The program video contains all anatomical graphics and images.
After completing this program, you should be able to:
1. Recognize the capabilities of CT scanners as they evolved from the 1970s to the present.
2. Review the anatomical structures that were best defined by CT scanners of each era covered.
3. Identify selected pathological processes associated with the anatomical regions discussed.
4. Summarize the technological advancements that have occurred in computed tomography over the past four decades.
Course objectives for this program specifically target CT technologists.
1. Computed Tomography - 1970's and 1980's
2. CT 1990's
3. Twenty-first Century
