Replacing course(s)

This course replaces the following course(s): MRSC3100. Students who have successfully completed MRSC3100 are not eligible to enrol in MRSC3105.

Learning outcomes

On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

1. Describe and apply profession specific diagnostic radiography practice and procedures for the regions being covered

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 and apply self learning skills


Course covers hepato-biliary, gastro-intestinal, genito-urinary and female and maternal content . 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.Consideration is given to patient presentations such as Trauma, Paediatrics, Geriatrics
