This unit of study builds upon knowledge of imaging technology, image quality and radiographic anatomy. Students will be expected to evaluate general radiographic images for quality and identify anatomical structures, injuries and diseases of the human body in planar images, including significant medical findings requiring urgent information giving. This unit of study combines an evidence based approach using research articles applied to case based learning of the axial skeleton and trunk areas
