|(3 cr.) This course focuses on invasive procedures
expected to be performed by the radiologist
assistant. Students develop an understanding of
the correlation of anatomy, pathology and
physiology as it relates to radiologic imaging and
interpretation with an assessment of need for
interventional procedures across the lifespan.
Procedures related to skeletal, respiratory and
cardiovascular and head and neck systems are
discussed, including but not limited to
arthrograms, lumbar punctures, PICC, central
venous lines, venogram, fistulograms, organ
biopsies and thoracentesis. Quality improvement
methods are emphasized.
