This course consolidates conventional diagnostic radiography approaches and extends the students' understanding of complex imaging modalities such as CT, MRI, Ultrasound and Angiography. Patient assessments for suitable imaging approaches are consolidated. Students will refine clinical reasoning skills to manage patients/clients, and professional practice and procedures.
|Objectives||Students who sucessfully complete this course should be able to:
1. describe and apply profession specific diagnostic radiography practice and procedures for the regions being covered which includes hepato-biliary, gastro-intestinal, genito-urinary, peripheral vasculature and female and maternal. Consideration is given to patient presentations such as Trauma, Paediatrics, Geriatrics, in addition to expansion of understanding higher modality instrumentation and procedures such as Computed Tomography, MRI, Ultrasound, Fluoroscopy, Angiography and Digital Imaging.
2. demonstrate clinical reasoning skills with regard to patient management and image evaluation which reflects the understanding of the clinical history and/or the impact on differential diagnosis to ensure the appropriate imaging pathway.
3. demonstrate their knowledge of mechanisms of injury and/or the causes of disease processes on varying patient presentations
4. continue to identify key imaging anatomy/surface anatomy to expand pattern recognition skills so as to identify radiographic pathology
5. demonstrate communication skills (written & oral)
6. demonstrate critical reasoning skills through the use of structured critical appraisal approach
7. further develop information technology skills by conducting a literature search using all major information technologies
8. demonstrate and apply self learning skills
9. reflect on & evaluate personal & peer contribution to the learning process via formal self & peer assessment.
