Radiographic Image Interpretation A - MRTY5098

Year - 2020

This unit of study provides the student with image interpretation skills and knowledge of the radiological and clinical indicators which are utilised to identify fractures, dislocations, pathology and normal variants of the appendicular skeleton. An overview of general anatomy and biomechanics provides a foundation to the basic principles of image interpretation, and a systematic approach to assessing images that aims at enabling the practitioner to achieve a level of competency above the "red dot" system. Students will also participate in discussion about the current state of image reporting for radiographers in Australia and worldwide.
