Fundamentals of radiographic diagnosis. The VMB 960 course is focused on the diagnostic imaging appearance of small and large animal thoracic, abdominal, musculoskeletal and neurologic disease. The main imaging modality that will be covered is diagnostic radiology and some diagnostic ultrasound but Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) will be introduced as well. The principles of image interpretation will be revisited and the imaging appearance of important and common diseases will be presented and discussed. Case examples will be shown and students may be asked to provide case interpretation in class.

After undergoing CVM curriculum committee review, this course has to be reduced to 2 credit hours because a second year fall semester course (1 credit hour) was newly implemented that took over that content and credit hour.

College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of Veterinary MedicineKirk NussUpon review, outside consult appears to be unnecessary because the course's veterinary medical content is unique to the DVM program.
Existing resources will be utilized. Lectures will held by the faculty members of the radiology section of the college of veterinary medicine as a part of their teaching assignment.

This course is built on the second year Fall Semester course VMB 936, Introduction to Radiology. It will provide students with the image interpretation skills needed o recognize normal thoracic, abdominal and musculoskeletal imaging studies and to recognize the most common disease processes.

ABGS Reviewer Comments:
-Are there restrictions on the course, like DVM students only?
-The major change is reducing from 3 to 2 credits.
