Spinal Imaging Series: Course 1. The Basics of Spinal Imaging

Course 1 of 12 has 14 hours of content and will introduce you to the role of the physical therapist and radiology, history of radiology, and basics about radiodensity and radiologic positioning.

In the entire Spinal Imaging Series, there are 12 courses, each with 8 - 16 hours of content. Unlike many continuing education courses, modules are organized as a post-graduate level course which means there are homework assignments! Also, there is a required text for the course: McKinnis L. Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Imaging (4th ed.). FA Davis. 2014. Each course has an estimated amount of time to complete, "piloted" by over 30 DPT students who took a similar course as an elective at Eastern Washington University.

If you plan to take more than one course, you might take them sequentially since each course builds on previous information. If you complete all 12 course, you will have completed most of the imaging content to satisfy the spinal diagnostic imaging requirement of Washington State RCW 18.74.190 for spinal manipulation endorsement.
