This unit of study builds upon foundation knowledge of imaging technology and patient care. Students will be expected to apply knowledge of general radiographic projections of the appendicular skeleton, including exposure factors, to a range of patient presentations and clinical indications. Using research as evidence for best practice, students will understand the clinical challenge/question and apply their knowledge of human anatomy in order to demonstrate adaptability of plain radiographic imaging technique.
