Our goal is to give you the tools and knowledge base to start understanding how to utilize MRI and be able to follow the interpretation of other health care providers.

The course covers:

PART 1: 63 Minutes Viewing, pre-test, post test, 54 slides handout

  1. Normal Anatomy
  2. Physics
  3. Degeneration
  4. Annular Fissuers
  5. Clinical Scenarios

PART 2:68 Minutes Viewing, pre-test, post test, 65 slides handout

  1. Inserting MRI discs and opening them
  2. Disc bulges
    1. Degenerative
    2. Sequalla to osseous issues
  3. Disc herniations
    1. Protrusions
    2. Extrusion
      1. Migrated
      2. Sequestered
  4. Modic changes
  5. Location terminology
  6. Ordering protocols

Course Objective: To be able to learn the foundational basics for interpreting MRI. This begins with understanding the opening of the MRI disc and navigating various images and sequences. Once the images are opened, be able to understand the basics of MRI physics of T1, T2 and STIR weighted images. To understand the different disc pathologies ranging from bulges and herniations along with the different subcategories.

Course Goals: To teach the student how to open MRI images from disc and then how to navigate. To help them see the differences between T1, T2 and STIR weighted images along with pathologies ranging from bulging and herniated discs and their various variations.
