This website is intended to use clinical cases and their relevant imaging studies to illustrate and emphasize some of the topics in Histology, Physiology and Biochemistry that you have been studying in your integrated PrISM course at BUSM. There will be an interactive classroom discussion of these cases and others, which you will find more useful if you have reviewed the cases ahead of time. The entire set of cases for one classroom session should take you less than 45 minutes to review.

This set of cases covers topics related to the cardiovascular system, including the following concepts:

- imaging of atherosclerosis, including radiography, angiography, CT and MR

- aortic stenosis and its evaluation using radiography, CT and echo

- abnormal left ventricular function, as demonstrated by imaging findings on radiography, echo, and MR

- imaging of abnormal cardiac development using CT and MR
