About this Seminar
Recognition of the pathological processes present in your images is key to ensuring a
successful imaging exam. This seminar will review the pathology of major anatomical
systems commonly presented in various diagnostic imaging examinations and help you
recognize the difference between normal and abnormal structures. This knowledge will
help you understand the disease processes presented by your patients and improve your
effectiveness in contributing to the resulting diagnosis.
