RADT 1135 - Radiographic Image Critique II

Credit hours: 1

Prerequisites: Formal acceptance into the Radiologic Technology Program

Industry Certifications The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists Certification and Registration

Course Description:
This course is a continuation of Radiographic Image Critique I concerning evaluation of radiographic image criteria.  Topics will include identification of anatomical structures, accurate positioning, and technical factors on images in each unit of instruction.  An emphasis will be placed on problem solving to determine the appropriate changes needed to obtain optimal image quality.

Student Learning Outcomes:
Students will be able to:

  1. Critique images for positioning, centering, appropriate anatomy, and overall image quality for each radiographic study covered in the course.
  2. Discuss corrective actions or methods of improving radiographic images that are not considered diagnostic quality for each unit of instruction.
  3. Analyze images to determine the appropriate use of beam restriction.
