Spinal Imaging Series: Course 5. Cervical Spine Routine Imaging

Course 5 of 12 has 16 hours of content, and will introduce you to routine radiographic images of the cervical spine (AP and lateral) as well as the oblique and open mouth view. By the end of the module, you will recognize cervical radiographic anatomy and know which projections are indicated for specific anatomy.

In the entire Spinal Imaging Series, there are 12 courses, each with 8 - 16 hours of content. Unlike many continuing education courses, the series is 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 module 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 builds on previous information. If you take all 12 courses, you will have completed the 150 hour spinal imaging requirement for the Washington State spinal manipulation endorsement.
