Jennifer Little, Ed.D., MSRS
Assistant Professor, Department of Health Sciences
- XRAD 902: Cross-Sectional Pathology
Little has been a clinical coordinator and instructor in the Bachelor of Science Radiologic Sciences for more than 10 years. In addition to her doctorate of education from CSUN, she has a Master of Science Radiation Sciences from Loma Linda University, and advanced certification in CT and MRI. She has taught courses related to medical imaging, computed tomography, pathophysiology, pathology and research seminar courses. She also is a practicing MRI technologist with more than 14 years of experience, specializing in protocol building and breast, trauma and cardiac imaging.
Little brings her educational background and work experience to XRAD 902. The course helps the student understand the human body as a whole and the interconnection within different imaging modalities. She teaches how to apply the pathophysiology concepts learned in this class to everyday patient scenarios. The technologist’s purpose is to provides patients with the best patient care, and to provide the physician with the appropriate images to help them with proper diagnosis. Little teaches students how to understand the physiology of the body so they can become patient advocates, critical thinkers and leaders in the imaging field.
