    Course Description
    The cardiovascular system is a large system that is vital for the human body to function. Many vessels, organs, and muscles work together to contribute to the heart pumping efficiently and effectively. Radiological imaging has always played a vital role in assessing, diagnosing, and treating patients with cardiac disease and conditions to keep the cardiovascular system functioning at optimal levels. It is important that radiologic technologists who perform, or assist with, imaging studies of patients with cardiac issues be well versed in all aspects of anatomy, cardiac disease, and the necessary studies that may be required. This course will discuss the cardiovascular system anatomy and its functions as well as the imaging modalities that play major roles in assisting clinicians with making sure that this system to functions properly, including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, sonography, and angiography. There will also be discussion of common cardiovascular pathologic conditions such as coarctation of the aorta, hypertension, cardiac arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, and myocardial infarction, along with signs and symptoms, risk factors, treatment options, and the role imaging plays with these diseases for visualization, diagnosis, and treatment.

    Learning Objectives
    After reading the content, the participant should be able to:

    • EXPLAIN the cardiovascular system, including the cardiac cycle and circulatory process, and its function.
    • IDENTIFY the anatomic structures that make up the cardiovascular system.
    • IDENTIFY and COMPARE the imaging modalities most frequently used to visualize, diagnose, and treat diseases of the cardiovascular system including radiography, echocardiography, CT, MRI, and angiography.
    • EXPLAIN the various pathologic conditions of the heart and the role that imaging and radiologic technologists play in their identification and treatment.
    • OUTLINE treatment options for cardiovascular pathologies and the protocols for those treatment plans.
    Categories: Radiography, Sonography, CT, MRI
