DMS 132 – Sonographic Appearance of Normal Anatomy

 

Course Description

This course introduces the student to the normal sonographic appearance of abdominal anatomy, female and male pelvic anatomy, and the vascular system in the abdomen and pelvis. Topics include: normal anatomy of the liver, biliary system, pancreas, urinary tract, spleen, prevertebral vessels, peritoneal cavity, retroperitoneum, gastrointestinal tract, non-cardiac chest, and male and female pelvic anatomy; history and physical examination; related imaging, laboratory results, and functional testing procedures; role of ultrasound in patient management; sonographic appearance and sonographic patterns of structures in the abdomen, female pelvis, male pelvis, and vascularity related to each area.
