The student will become familiar with the ultrasonic appearance of disease free organs, tissues and vessels of the human body. Normal and abnormal anatomical variants will also be addressed. Coursework will include recognition of abnormal pathological findings as diagnosed by ultrasound. Emphasis will be placed on teaching the students to identify sonographically normal cross sectional anatomy based on echogenicity, location and size relative to adjacent structures.
