Course Memo

As a continuation of PRO 102, this course incorporates the application of anatomy and physiology essential to the practice of radiologic technology. Standard and selected additional radiographic projections of the skull, facial bones and sinuses will be studied. Demonstrations and clinical testing will be conducted in the positioning lab. In addition, multiplanar anatomy of the head, thorax, spine, abdomen, and pelvis will be investigated with correlation of CT. Students will be introduced to interventional radiographic procedures, heart catheterizations and mammography. Radiographic procedures of the digestive, nervous, urinary and reproductive systems will also be covered. A study of the positioning recommendations and radiographic considerations for contrast studies of these systems will be included. Pediatric imaging and special considerations will be discussed. Image evaluation and critique of these procedures will be covered.
