This is the first of three courses covering radiographic anatomy and positioning. The student uses appropriate medical terminology, performs radiographic exams, and analyzes radiographs critically. Lab positioning begins immediately and includes procedures of the upper and lower extremities, chest, and abdomen. A competency-based curriculum requires the student to prove competency on procedures in the lab prior to performing them in hospital. They must achieve at least 25/28 on a lab competency test for each exam in order to pass.
2.5 hours of lecture, 1.5 hours of lab per week
