Medical Imaging Foundation

This distance-learning course has been developed to prepare Physiotherapists for emerging advanced practice roles that will involve the ordering of medical diagnostic imaging. The program is presented over a 10-week period through 10 comprehensive audio-visual modules supported by selected readings and additional resource materials. Medical Diagnostic Imaging concepts will be presented for the musculoskeletal, cardio-respiratory and neurological systems. The imaging views and modalities for each of these systems and the commonly seen pathologies will be reviewed. The course has a strong focus on clinical practice utilization and the utility of imaging with the goal of preparing clinicians for rostering with their regulatory College for this advanced practice authority. The program is delivered by Key Clinical Skills with registration through the Ontario Physiotherapy Association.
