Nuclear Medicine Methods IIIA
|Course code MRSC3300||Units 20||Level 3000||Faculty of Health and MedicineSchool of Health Sciences|
This course further develops & examines complex and key components of Nuclear Medicine science. These components are divided into two domains:
1. Nuclear Medicine methods, which develops the concept of imaging procedures.
2. Radiopharmacy examines the principles of design, production, preparation and the physiological behaviour of radiopharmaceuticals.
Available in 2014
1. Describe and apply correct nuclear medicine practice in the diagnosis and treatment of disease or injury and appreciate the range of disease processes and injuries which can be diagnosed and treated with nuclear medicine.
2. Further develop clinical reasoning skills with regard to patient management, patient care, and imaging/treatment evaluation.
3. Describe the principles, design, preparation and production of radiopharmaceuticals including the laboratory techniques and the equipment involved.
4. Describe the physiological behaviour and physiological pathways of radiopharmaceuticals.
5. Discuss and apply quality control techniques in radiopharmacy.
6. Describe techniques for venepuncture and intravenous cannulation.
