Radiographic Science 3 - MRTY3120

Year - 2020

This UOS is a core radiographic science subject that builds upon the knowledge of MRTY2101 and MRTY2105 with intermediate-complex imaging concepts, such as fluoroscopy, CT, MRI and interventional imaging. There is a focus on the use of various forms of contrast media that are used in radiographic examinations. Radiographic Science 3 includes cross sectional imaging, using CT and MRI images of the central nervous system, hepato-biliary and gastrointestinal systems. This UOS will also extend the students' knowledge of plain radiographic examinations (mobile and fixed units) in trauma and operating theatre scenarios, as well as involve discussion of interventional radiology concepts.
