Course Objectives

Course Overview


Prerequisite(s): None

This course is a study of human anatomy viewed in sectional planes. Students will compare planar anatomy to sectional anatomy and recognize anatomical structures in computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Studies will include the cranium, brain, spine, neck, chest, abdomen, pelvis, and extremities.

 

Course Objectives


 Radiologic technologists should demonstrate increased awareness of how the human body is arranged three-dimensionally. This course provides opportunities to recognize relationships between standardized anatomical structures prior to working with variations found in "live" patients.

Upon completion of this course, a student will:

      • Recognize anatomic structures in various planes.
      • Relate planar anatomy to line drawings of related cross-sectional anatomy.
      • Describe the spatial relationship of one structure to another.
      • Differentiate between the appearances of anatomic structures among different modalities such as Computed Tomography. (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
      • Identify the strengths and weaknesses of each imaging modality for identifying specific pathological processes.

 

Teaching Strategies


Independent reading assignments, study guides, Desire2Learn (D2L) modules, Sectional anatomy assignment, optional learning activities, open book module quizzes, and a closed book proctored final exam are used in this course.

Evaluation


 Grading

Assignments will be graded in a timely manner after the published due dates. The professor will not grade assignments early nor will be professor “pre-grade” assignments. The professor is committed to your education and will answer relevant questions about course topics so long as such answers do not compromise specific assignments or specific test question.

Grade distribution

  • 25%     D2L open book module quizzes (˜3.125% each quiz x 8 modules)
  • 25%     Sectional Anatomy Powerpoint Assignment
  • 50%     Proctored D2L comprehensive closed book final exam

 

Grade Scale

A = 100 - 90

B = 89 - 80

C = 79 - 70

D = 69 - 60

F = 59 and below

Grade Rounding

The professor does not “round up” individual assignments. The professor will round up a course grade that is greater than 0.45 points from the next level.

 

Final Course Grade

 

A final course score (including any “rounding up”) of 69.45 is required to pass this course. Letter grades of “D” or “F” cannot be used for graduation and will require the course be repeated according to the current department policies.

 

The last date to withdraw from this course and receive a grade of “W” is Monday October 30th at 4:00pm CST. All withdrawals must be initiated by the student. After this date dropping the course results in a grade of “F”.

 

Late Work


Due Dates. Assignments and quizzes must be submitted by 23:59 (11:59 pm) Central time, on scheduled due dates in the course schedule. There are target due dates in the course schedule to keep the student on track to successfully complete all course work. If a student fails to meet a final deadline the student will receive no (0) credit for the assignment not submitted on time.

 

Emergency Extension. If you have a major event such as a death in the family, illness, hospitalization, or other extenuating circumstances, email the instructor at vicki.sanders@mwsu.edu  as soon as possible on or before the scheduled due date. All course work must be completed in the semester the course is taken. The professor does not give incomplete grades.

 

Submission Format Policy

CLASS ACTIVITIES AND ASSIGNMENTS


Modules

The course content is divided into eight (8) individual Modules. Each module contains a study guide and associated quiz. The course content is divided into modules by chapters. Additional resource material is available through the Internet.

 

See the Course Schedule at the end of this syllabus for all deadlines.

 

With each module there are interactive labeling activities to reinforce your learning. Although the labeling activities are not graded, they are highly recommended. You may attempt these as many times as needed, and you may refer back to them at any time during this course.

Once you feel comfortable with the module notes, the associated pages in your textbook, and the learning activities, you should complete the associated module exams.

 

Independent Reading Assignments

Students should complete the reading assignments listed in the module notes, and answer the chapter objectives before taking the open book module quizzes. See the Course Schedule at the end of this syllabus for specific information about module quiz due dates.

 

The illustrations in the text are orientated in the same direction as CT and MR scans. The course includes images that are coronal (front to back), sagittal (side to side), as well as axial or transverse (top to bottom).  While the text is more or less self-explanatory, the individual modules in the course begin with diagrams relating to planar anatomy. These diagrams are included to assist the student in becoming familiar with the relationship between the anatomical structures when viewed in cross-sectional orientation.

 

Module Quizzes -25%

When a student has reviewed a module and is ready for the quiz, he or she will log on to D2L and receive a customized timed module quiz consisting of randomized multiple choice and/or matching questions. It is important to know the module content before attempting the module quizzes because they are timed. Quiz questions will be from information learned in the modules and reading. Review the important key items and the objectives before attempting a quiz.

 

Be sure to start the quizzes well in advance of the close time for the exams. If you are not finished by the time the exam period closes, the exam you are working on will shut down even if you have not finished. Also, save your answers continuously to avoid losing your answers.

 

Due dates

All quizzes are open the day that classes begin, so you may work ahead but you must complete the first quiz before other quizzes can be accessed. When one quiz is completed, you will have access to the next quiz. A target date for each quiz is provided in the Course Schedule to help you plan your progress through the course. Quizzes not completed by the final due date, will receive a zero (0). Under no circumstances will an extension be made to incomplete quizzes not completed by the close date. Students should contact the instructor in extenuating circumstances before the close date of the quizzes; such cases will be dealt with on an individual basis (see the section on late work). All quizzes must be completed before taking the Final Exam. See the course schedule for the due dates for the quizzes.

 

Technical problems

 If technical issues occur (cannot see an image, cannot see your grade, etc.) sometimes the easiest solution is to see if the issue can be corrected by simply changing browsers. Fewer occurrences have been noted by using Firefox or Chrome as a browser for D2L.

 

If students have technical difficulties during a quiz, they should use the Help link in D2L, contact the MSU Information Systems Support Staff (http://www.mwsu.edu/it/), and send an email to the course instructor explaining what happened. Screen shots and/or taking a picture of your screen may help in diagnosing the problem.

 

Scores

If a student finds a faulty quiz test item or believes that a quiz question has been scored incorrectly, he or she should send an email to the course instructor that includes the following:

  • Module Quiz Number (I -VI)
  • Answer the Student Thinks Should be Correct
  • Rationale Supporting Why the Student's Answer is Correct
  • Page numbers must be included when referencing the textbook in a rationale

 

After reviewing the case, if the course instructor thinks a revision is justified, the student's quiz score will be revised to reflect the additional points and the test bank will be updated.

 

Sectional Anatomy PowerPoint Assignment -25%

 

The Sectional Anatomy Assignment is a short PowerPoint demonstration of knowledge. The purpose of this assignment is to enforce the  appearance of anatomy as compared to pathological changes detected on different sectional imaging modalities (CT and MRI).

 

Students should demonstrate that they have an understanding of the anatomy they chose, but perhaps more importantly, this assignment provides an opportunity for students to “step back” and see which imaging modality is the most appropriate for the anatomy and condition being examined to improve the diagnosis and treatment of the patients.

 

Topic Approval (Must be submitted by due date)

Students will pick one (1) organ, joint, or section of the spine (cervical, thoracic, or lumbar) and an associated specific pathology to research. Use the bulleted guidelines below when choosing your topic. Students must submit their topic requests to the appropriate discussion by the due date indicated on the course schedule or a grade of zero (0) for the entire assignment may be assigned.

  • You will be comparing CT and MRI modalities. You should do some research prior to submitting your topic for approval to determine that your chosen pathology can be imaged using both modalities.
  • Two students cannot have the same topic. To avoid duplication, students should review the discussion board to see anatomy already selected by classmates. First come first served.
  • Students may NOT use anatomy reports submitted previously for other classes. The instructor may not be aware that a student has previously used a particular topic. Even if the instructor approves the topic for this class and it is revealed later that the student is using the same topic, the student will receive a zero (0) on this assignment. Students would be wise to select topics they have not written about in the past. Refer to the Honor System section of this syllabus, the course instructor, and the links within D2L for more information on academic dishonesty.

 

The course instructor will let the student know his/her selected anatomy topic is approved by posting on the discussion board.

 

Sources:

Students must use at least 3 – 5 current sources of information about this anatomy. The sources must be less than five years old. Students may use textbooks, scholarly journal articles (Radiographics is a great source), or other scholarly sources for information about the anatomy (including electronic sources). These articles can be retrieved electronically from databases such as CINAHL which is available through online connection to the Moffett Library.

 

Students should use only credible medical websites such as eMedicine.com. NO CUT AND PASTE of text information from websites. Wikipedia is convenient for casual use, but it is NOT a reliable source for this report because it is “open source.” This means that anyone can modify the content on the website so you might be using information from the website that is not current or accurate.

 

Assignment Format:

Students must identify the reliable sources they used to create the assignment using appropriate APA format for the reference page. You do not need to include in-text citations. For help with APA formatting for the reference page, students should review the 6th edition of the APA Manual and other resources such as The OWL at Purdue website. http://owl.english.purdue.edu/  This is a quick reference and not as detailed as the writing manual.

 

The assignment must be submitted in a legible font (e.g. Arial, Calibri, or Times New Roman is acceptable – Courier, Verbena, or other “fancy” fonts are not acceptable)

 

Images:

 

You must give credit for images you obtain. You can either include the url under each image, or you can include an in-text citation and provide a reference in the reference slide (these do not count as part of your required 3-5 references). An example of citations in a PowerPoint can be found at http://lgdata.s3-website-us-east- 1.amazonaws.com/docs/914/249402/Sample_APA_PowerPoint.pdf

 

HIPAA requirement: Do not place ANY patient name or identification on your assignments. Any proper name that appears on an assignment, other than the student’s, will be considered a HIPAA violation and the assignment grade may be dropped to as low as a zero, depending on the severity of the violation.

 

Audience:

For this assignment, the intended reader is a staff radiographer. Students should prepare this assignment based on what the typical staff radiographer already knows. For example, students do NOT need to explain how x-rays were discovered or how they are produced to support that a CT chest with contrast is the most valuable study to see the thoracic aorta.

 

Organization:

Organization, flow, and grammar count as part of the assignment grade. The assignment MUST address all criteria listed and in the order given below. DO NOT include any more slides than what are listed for this assignment (points may be deducted for an inappropriate number of slides). You are to extrapolate information and properly summarize it. Slides must be written at a baccalaureate level.

 

Creativity:

Even though you must follow the set guidelines for each slide that are described in the submission format below, you can make this presentation as simple or as interactive as you want. You may include a voice over presentation if you are so inclined, but it is not required. You may add a background if you have a creative flair, but please be sure it is nothing distracting. It must be readable for anyone with color blindness, and must be professional. Your text should remain black. If you have a dark background use white. If you are unsure of what is appropriate either stick with the usual PowerPoint background, or do not include one.

 

Submission Format:

The assignment must contain and be limited to the following slides:

 

Slide 1: A title that includes:

  • The name of the pathology
  • The name of the student
  • University affiliation
  • Course number and section
  • Date
  • Instructor’s name

 

Slide 2: Identify the pathology and give a brief description of important information regarding the pathology.

 

Slide 3: Diagnostic procedures. Briefly explain the steps needed to produce an image in both modalities. This should include items such as patient position, contrast used and how much, region of interest, any specific protocols, etc. Do not go into a lengthy discussion. You do not need to say remove all jewelry, articles of clothing and so forth.

 

Slide 4: CT imaging comparison. Show a CT image of a “normal” section of your chosen anatomy and compare it to an “abnormal” CT image demonstrating the same anatomy including your chosen pathology. Using labels identify all pertinent anatomical structures in both images. Do not forget to identify the pathology. Make sure both images are CT images.

*Note: Make sure these are CT images. Not all images found on the internet are accurately labeled. If you are unsure, refer to your textbook or ask your professor.

 

Slide 5: MRI imaging comparison. Show an MRI image of a “normal” section of your chosen anatomy and compare it to an “abnormal” MRI image demonstrating the same anatomy including your chosen pathology.  Using labels identify all pertinent anatomical structures in both images. Do not forget to identify the pathology. Make sure both images are MRI images.

*Note: Make sure these are MRI images. Not all images found on the internet are accurately labeled. If you are unsure, refer to your textbook or ask your professor.

 

Slide 6: Conclusion. Determine from your research, the best modality that would aid the radiologist/physician in terms of diagnosis and treatment and why.

 

Slide 7: References. The Reference list must be in APA format according to the 6th edition APA Manual. Another useful resource is the OWL at Purdue website. http://owl.english.purdue.edu/

 

To allow sufficient time for grading and providing feedback, late submissions will NOT be accepted. Any assignment not submitted or submitted after the deadline will be assessed a grade of zero “0”. Early submissions are appreciated; however, they will not be returned until the end of the semester after all submissions have been graded. The PowerPoint must be submitted as one document to the Sectional Anatomy Dropbox in the course.

 

Students must use the following format as the title of the assignment when saving the document:

Lastname_topic

Example: Smith_Brain_Cerebral aneurysm

 

Note: All assignments received are considered complete and will be graded as such.

Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is the use of someone else's thoughts, words, ideas, or lines of argument in your own work without appropriate documentation (a parenthetical citation at the end and a listing in "Works Cited")-whether you use that material in a quote, paraphrase, or summary. It is a theft of intellectual property and will not be tolerated, whether intentional or not.

Student Honor Creed

As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."

As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.

Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.

We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.

We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.

Written and adopted by the 2002-2003 MSU Student Senate.

Please keep in mind that, once you've earned over 90 hours, you lose the opportunity to take the $25 exam and have no option but to enroll in the three-credit hour course. If you have any questions about the exam, visit the Writing Proficiency Office website at https://mwsu.edu/academics/wpr, or call 397-4131.
