Applied Radiography III is designed to focus on radiographic procedure methods for radiography of the axial and appendicular skeleton and the body systems as it relates to patients across the lifespan. The student will also be introduced to more advanced imaging modalities such as arteriography, myelography and CT. Clinical emphasis is on the enhancement of critical thinking problem solving skills as the student continues to develop and demonstrate competency in the performance of diagnostic imaging procedures.
This course is an in-depth study of x-ray production, x-ray emission, and x-ray interaction with matter. In addition, photographic and geometric properties of images will be studied as well as the effects of scatter radiation. Lab sessions will follow most classes in order to emphasize the components of the lecture material.
