DMSO 1020 –Sectional Anatomy and Normal Sonographic Appearance (5)
This course combines the didactic education of sectional anatomy with active student participation in classroom laboratory experience.
Information is weighted toward normal structures which are sonographically visible. Structures are described according to relative location and
proportionality. Topics include: normal sectional anatomy of the neck, liver, biliary system, pancreas, genitourinary tract, spleen, peritoneal
cavity, retroperitoneum, gastrointestinal tract, and vascular system structures within the upper and lower extremity; anatomic planes related to
sonographic images; sonographic appearance and sonographic patterns of structures in the female and male pelvis, neck, liver, biliary
system, pancreas, peritoneum and retroperitoneum, gastrointestinal tract, non cardiac chest, and upper and low extremities; and related
imaging, laboratory testing procedures and functional testing procedures.
