Narrow the Topic

Compare and contrast two hereditary pathologies and their respective radiographic manifestations.

Describe etiologic factors of heart disease (e.g., atherosclerosis) and how MRI diagnostics are used (e.g., surgery).

How are MRI optimization, patient positioning, and patient consideration interrelated?
How does critical thinking lead to smarter MRIs that saves lives? (e.g., blunt force trauma)
What are some radiographic manifestations of disease processes in the hematopoietic system?
What are the optimal technical factors to improve patient immobilization?
Why are pelvic protocols, compression bands, and protocols vital for pregnant patients?
