Summary of Content

This module aims to underpin clinical practice by supporting students to gain fundamental theoretical knowledge about non-standard conventional imaging technologies. The module will also improve student's understanding of non-routine situations in the Accident and Emergency department and theatre setting. There will be an emphasis on imaging within the acute & emergency environment with focus on the specific care issues required within these environments.

Syllabus

With regards to radiographic procedures relating to dental imaging, theatre, lithotripsy, interventional labs, DEXA imaging, paediatric imaging, the trauma environment, major incident and forensics: -360b7 Physical principles b7 Standard equipment and imaging systems b7 Standard applications and adapted technique b7 Protocol optimisation b7 Patient care b7 Health & Safety Radiation Protection b7 Image evaluation . Relevant anatomy & pathology in context

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this module students should be able to1. Discuss the indications, preparations and techniques for common procedures carried out within the non-standard imaging environment.2. Discuss the indications, preparations and techniques for adapted conventional imaging.3. Discuss the specific care issues relating to imaging of the trauma / acutely unwell patient/ major incident.

Teaching / Learning Strategy

Keynote lectures will be led by academic staff and expert guest lecturers. A combination of keynote lectures, tutorials and simulated learning will be used. Completion of pre-reading, directed reading and learning is critical to facilitate comprehensive learning. Tutorials and practical sessions will reinforce and expand on essential content. The interactive electronic learning environment (e.g. GCULearn, Shaderware) will be used to support learning.
