This unit of study extends students' knowledge of direct and computed radiography systems. Imaging principles of fluoroscopy, computed tomography, dental imaging and magnetic resonance imaging will be investigated with particular reference to equipment, safety, dosimetry and artefacts. Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of image processing techniques commonly applied in sectional imaging modalities. Film-screen radiography will be evaluated from a historical perspective, including changes in exposure factors resulting from newer technologies.
