This unit of study will develop the student's knowledge in the professional practice of diagnostic radiography of the axial skeleton. The techniques covered will build upon routine procedures that the student will encounter in the workplace, and focus on the axial skeleton, abdomen and pelvis. Anatomy, physiology and pathology will be integrated with corresponding techniques of selected body systems. Planar anatomy and imaging will be included as appropriate. Students will be expected to supplement and broaden their learning by independent research on relevant topics.
