Advanced Multiplanar Anatomy B (MRTY5091)


Detailed anatomy of the brain is presented in this unit. The regions studied are the brain stem, cranial nerves and nuclei, cerebellum, diencephalon, cerebral hemisphere and cortex, basal ganglia, limbic system, ventricular system and the blood supply. The practical component involves interpretation of soft copy MR images. The advantage of specific planes with respect to the demonstration of specific pathologies will be discussed. This unit is targeted at professionals primarily working with MRI but NM or RT professionals if they are intensively utilizing CT as an anatomic imaging tool would benefit from this unit. A good knowledge of cross-sectional anatomy is essential for this unit . The delivery will be in distance education mode and will utilise a range of media, including printed material.
