TO 215 COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY PATHOLOGY & PROCEDURES



Computed Tomography Pathology & Procedures will allow the student to recognize pathologies within the human anatomy after a Computed Tomography scan has ended. Recognition of adverse pathologies that can be identified by a technologist is vital to helping the Radiologist prioritize reading of exams and triaging cases appropriately. This course will also cover the invasive procedures that are performed within the Computerized Tomography field, so that the technologist can effectively deliver optimal scanning techniques, ensure sterile field integrity and assist the Radiologist during procedures. Specific Topics: 3-D Studies, Radiation Therapy Planning, Drainage and Aspiration Procedures, Virtual Colonography, Brain Perfusion Studies, Myelography, CT Arthrography, Diskography, Carcinoid, Colorectal Cancer, Chrohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Intussusception, Mesenteric lschemia, Hemangioma, Adenocarcinoma, Polycystic Kidney Disease, Diverticulitis, Aortic Aneurysm, Uterine Leiomyoma, Sarcoidosis, Hepatic Adenoma, Pulmonary Embolism, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, Splenic Injury, Intra-abdominal Free Fluid, Cholelithiasis, Renal Calculi, Lymphoma, Metastatic Disease, Lung Nodule, Transplant Studies, Pelvis Trauma, Vascular Studies, Appendicitis, Enterogmphyytud)\ Multi-phase Examinations.
