Course Description

Provides a comprehensive review of cross sectional anatomy of all body systems, review of anatomical landmarks and an understanding of normal versus abnormal anatomy and is a hybrid course €“ both classroom and on-line components. May be taken two times for credit. Department permission required. Prerequisites: CTT 103 or equivalent.

Addendum to Course Description

Students who successfully completed Sectional Anatomy courses while attending other professional programs, may, with department€™s permission, enroll in this course without taking prerequisites. Successful completion of this course will allow student to proceed in the Computed Tomography Program. This course may be repeated one time.

Intended Outcomes for the course

Upon completion of this course, the student will:
A. Apply knowledge of cross sectional anatomy to obtain appropriate images in trans-axial, coronal, sagittal and oblique planes of all body systems,
B. Apply knowledge of anatomical landmarks used for positioning, centering and determining scan completion for Computed Tomography imaging.
C. Differentiate between normal and abnormal sectional anatomy to provide appropriate images for each procedure.
D. Apply radiation safety principles and practices as prescribed by professional standards.

Course Activities and Design

Review all concepts and previously presented materials during lecture and on-line components. Complete all on-line course components. Successful completion of (75% or better) both midterm and final examinations.

Outcome Assessment Strategies

A. Successful completion of on-line study units by end of term.
B. Successful completion of classroom exercises and homework.
C. Achievement of at least 75% or better on both midterm and final examinations
