Pathophysiology Panorama

By Jordyn Holliday

College of DuPage will host the 17th Annual Pathophysiology Panorama from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 28, in the Health and Science Center Lobby on the College’s Glen Ellyn campus.

This event is free and open to the public.

Diagnostic medical imaging students from the Mammography, Nuclear Medicine, Radiography, Sonography and Computed Tomography programs at COD will display and discuss their research projects on a broad range of diseases and pathologies detected and recorded using various imaging processes, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Thyroid Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Lymphoma and Osteomalacia.

Radiography Program Coordinator Shelli Thacker said the event helps prepare presenters with communication skills necessary to succeed in the health care industry and added that many of the students are motivated by personal connections to their research.

“They are very excited to have the opportunity to share their findings with others,” she said. “Many have chosen a disease that has affected their family in one way or another, which makes them more passionate about the project.”
