Course Description This course is designed to introduce physical therapists to the basic science of imaging modalities including plain film radiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), conventional and computed tomography, ultrasound and bone mineral density testing. The ability for physical therapists to communicate with referring physicians is integral to effective management of a patients case. Diagnostic imaging brings an entire realm of adjunct information to the therapist that can dramatically enhance understanding of the patients condition as well as improve monitoring and appropriate intervention selection.
