This unit of study will continue to develop the student's knowledge in the professional practice of diagnostic radiography. The techniques covered will introduce more specialised procedures that the student will encounter in the workplace. Anatomy, physiology and pathology will be integrated with corresponding imaging techniques of selected body systems such as the GIT and CNS. Dedicated planar anatomy and imaging will be included for selected body systems. Students will be expected to supplement and broaden their learning by independent research on relevant topics, such as trauma imaging
