This unit of study introduces the student to the professional practice of diagnostic radiography of the chest and upper and lower limbs. The techniques covered will include routine procedures that the student will encounter in the clinical setting. Radiographic anatomy and pathology will be integrated with the corresponding radiographic techniques. This unit will apply evidence based theory to practice and integrate basic applied sciences to imaging techniques. Students will be expected to supplement and broaden their learning experience by pre-reading class material and undertaking independent research on relevant topics.
