Radiographic Practice 2.2 (MRTY2092)


This unit of study integrates knowledge from both basic and applied clinical sciences and focuses on the radiographer and the patient. Professional practice and personal development issues are considered at the same time as designated techniques. In this unit of study the student will investigate radiographic techniques and study the roles of additional imaging modalities in the diagnosis of trauma, injury and disease, in particular, of the axial skeleton and the internal body systems. The unit of study is divided into modules focusing on adults, neonates, infants and the aged and will be delivered using inquiry-based learning. Aspects covered within each module will include patient preparation, contrast media administration, technical considerations, radiographic pathology, with the routine protocols being supported by evidence drawn from reference articles.
