Radiologic technologists should demonstrate increased awareness of how the human body is
arranged three-dimensionally. This course provides opportunities to recognize relationships
between standardized anatomical structures prior to working with variations found in "live"
Upon completion of this course, a student will be able to:
Recognize anatomic structures in various planes.
Relate planar anatomy to line drawings of related cross-sectional anatomy.
Describe the spatial relationship of one structure to another.
Differentiate between the appearances of anatomic structures among different modalities
such as Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
Identify the strengths and weaknesses of each imaging modality for identifying specific

followed by the summary of the article (approx 200 words or less).
The summary will describe the:
Main points of the article,
Describe the role of sectional imaging,
Describe whether that procedure is done in the student’s clinical facility,
Describe the student’s impression of the usefulness of the article for other technologists.
Page Three: Summary #2. same process as #1
Page Four: Summary #3. same process as #1

and peers when studying. This interactive collegial learning environment is conducive for life-long
Specific components of RADS 4733 are designed to represent the efforts of each student
INDIVIDUALLY and are NOT to be shared or copied (plagiarized) from other sources. These
components include the WebCT Unit Quizzes, the Annotated Bibliography, and the WebCT
Comprehensive Final Exam. When students submit their efforts for grading, they are attesting
they abided by this rule.

Communication with Instructor:
Contact information for the instructor is listed at the beginning of this syllabus. Email is the
preferred mode of communication. Students must set up and use the “mwsu.edu” email – please
go to the university homepage and click on “webmail”, where you will find a tutorial that explains
how to set up the student email. The instructor will respond or at least acknowledge email
messages from students within a maximum of five (5) business days when MSU is in session.
Beyond standard university holidays and breaks, the instructor will notify students of any
