Professional Practice Nuclear Medicine 4 (MRSC5023)


This is the final unit of study which will complete the student's learning in professional practice of nuclear medicine. The techniques covered will include routine procedures that the student will encounter in the clinical setting. The theory of anatomy, physiology, pathology and radiopharmacy of selected body systems will be taught in context with the technique. Students will critically explore variations in techniques found in the clinical setting using a problem solving approach. Students will critically evaluate current practice from an evidence based perspective. Students will be expected to supplement and broaden their learning by independent research on relevant topics.
