The NVAPTA invites you to learn more about diagnostic imaging while helping raise funds for the 2017 efforts in updating our practice act! We purposely kept the fee low to encourage participation. We'll have a lunch meeting where we'll discuss upcoming battles with the practice act so in 2017, we can be ready!

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

Upon completion of this course, the student will:

  1.  Recognize how the study of medical imaging can make the clinician’s evaluation and treatment of the patient more comprehensive.
  2. Discuss the evolution of diagnostic imaging, from its historical beginnings to modern technologies with computer integration.
  3. Describe and discuss the clinical impact of common imaging technologies in musculoskeletal imaging
  4.  Compare and contrast the clinical capabilities, and limitations of radiographs, computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and diagnostic ultrasound
  5. Discuss the role of PT’s in the diagnostic imaging system through their correlation of clinical findings with imaging information.
  6. Describe the radiologic evaluation of fractures and fracture healing.
  7. Discuss the radiologic evaluation, observations, common injury patterns, degenerative disease process, and anomalies of various regions of the body (i.e.: cervical, lumbar, thoracic spine, pelvis, and hip)
  8. Apply medical imaging information to physical therapy intervention planning.
  9. Distinguishes the major roles of conventional radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, and computed tomography in clinical decision making.
