Course Description: The class will review the history, technology, and applications of Medical Imaging, from the X-Ray and Ultrasound to CT, MRI and Nuclear Imaging. We will discuss the technologies and clinical applications of each modality so you can understand why a physician orders a particular exam. During my career I was fortunate to work with many of the people who were developing the new imaging technologies in Ultrasound, in CT, and in MRI. Part of my goal in this course is to tell the story of who they were and how they developed the new tools that led to our ability to see and diagnose disease.
Dates/Times: Wednesdays Jan 10 to Mar 6, from 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm. (No class on 02/14/24)
