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 intensively utilizing CT as an anatomic imaging tool would also 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.
