Cross-sectional Imaging - Diagnostic

This module is designed for Diagnostic Radiographers and will be delivered jointly with the Cross Sectional Imaging - Therapeutic (RA7005b) module. Although the contents of the two modules are similar, there are distinct differences in the application of practice which will be evident in the assessment presentation. The module will bring together the physical principles and clinical applications of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. The aim of the module is to help Diagnostic Radiographers at all levels to make effective and safe use of contemporary imaging systems found in imaging departments. In addition by critically exploring technological advances in cross sectional imaging systems the module will also help prepare the Radiographer for the future developments in imaging practice.

Learning outcomes:  

  • critically discuss the physical principles, and compare and contrast mechanisms of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.
  • compare and contrast the clinical diagnostic applications of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.
  • critically evaluate the quality assurance and the safety measures associated with computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.
  • review and evaluate cross sectional image anatomy and pathology.
