RAD 441 Radiographic Procedures and Image Analysis III
This course is a continuation of Radiographic Procedures and Image Analysis II and provides students with the knowledge related to exams which utilize radiographic contrast agents in both diagnostic and fluoroscopic radiography. This course provides students with the knowledge of the purpose and function of the respiratory, digestive and urinary systems. Detailed and precise information concerning radiographic positioning utilized during fluoroscopic exams is addressed. Laboratory exercises in positioning are carefully correlated with the study of each body system. As each system is reviewed radiographic imaging analysis is addressed providing students with the knowledge to determine the diagnostic quality of radiographs and methods to improve the quality of radiographic images. Students will receive extensive instruction on radiographic exam specific radiation protection practices in order to minimize the amount of radiation exposure to the patient.
