This unit of study continues to build knowledge of general radiographic examinations with a focus on imaging technology, technique adaptation and radiographic anatomy of the axial skeleton. Students will be expected to evaluate general radiographic images for quality and interpret plain radiographs for common pathologies and normal variants. This unit of study combines an evidence based approach using research articles applied to case based learning. Cross sectional imaging primarily through the use of CT imaging will be introduced and students will be expected to demonstrate skill in recognising sectional anatomy.
