Curricular information is subject to change
Knowledge Outcomes:On completion of this module the successful student will be able to:
- Apply knowledge and understanding of human anatomy to the technical and clinical evaluation of radiographic images
- Recognize and evaluate the relative advantages and limitations of various projections in the visualization of suspected pathology.
-Explain and justify appropriate projections for specific indications for advanced X-ray imaging of trauma patients.
-Apply knowledge of imaging systems and radiation protection principles to ensure optimization of dose and image quality.
-Explain technical, patient and pathological factors influencing preparation and choice of technique for advanced or modified projections.
-Critically evaluate and interpret requests for imaging investigations to the extent that it allows the student to make an independent judgment about the suitability and viability of the proposed investigations.
Professional Skills:On completion of this module the successful student will be able to:
-Analyze and solve problems using appropriate guidelines and research evidence.-Assess the role of the radiographer in the overall care of the patient
-Reflect critically on their performance and practice.-Assess images for common position errors and discuss how they can be corrected
-Discuss working practices and x-ray techniques to meet needs of individual patients and situations.- Identify basic skeletal pathologies and assess the need for further radiographic projections based on these pathologies.
Personal/Professional Development:On completion of this module students will also be able to:
-Gather and critically evaluate information from a wide range of sources
-Think logically, systematically and conceptually in order to demonstrate an evidence based approach to professional practice through the use of X-ray tutorial sessions, and research evidence and argument.
- Reflect upon radiographic images produced.
Justification of radiographic examinations
