SCSK 527 Applied Anatomy Using Ultrasound and Nerve Mapper

Brian Curry, PhD Donny Shanahan, PhD

This selective improves the anatomical knowledge of students in the second term of the four-year medical program by using cadaveric material to revisit the basic anatomy, and then using an ultrasound machine to view the internal structure on live volunteers of vital areas such as the neck and femoral triangle, and a nerve mapper to show the position of nerves and vessels in the living body in areas such as the neck, cubital fossa, and femoral triangle. The course uses new technology to show students the position of vital structures and reinforces the relevance of clinical anatomy.
