MRTY5041: Computed Tomography B

This unit of study looks at advanced CT concepts and imaging procedures. This includes applications that provide functional information or require more complex post processing. Cardiac angiography, virtual endoscopy, brain perfusion, portable, and interventional CT will be explored. The unit also examines the latest CT methodologies including volume imaging, dual source and muliti-energy CT, and the use of CT in other modalities such as molecular imaging and therapy planning. The physical principles, clinical application, and appropriate utilisation of these CT procedures will be explored.

Code MRTY5041
Academic unit Clinical Imaging
Credit points 6
Assumed knowledge:
This is an advanced practice unit that includes considerations relating to students' clinical experience and current practice. Students enrolling in this unit are expected to be working in CT at least two days per week. Students will need to apply for Department Permission and provide CV detailing their modality experience, and supporting letter from their employer indicating their experience.
