Darton State College Catalog 2013 - 2014 - page 475

Intermediate student learning experiences in the hospital/clinical setting. Topics
include: patient care; radiation safety practices; equipment utilization; exposure
techniques; attend to and/or observation of routine projections of the thoracic and
abdominal cavities, upper and lower extremities, pelvic girdle, and spine; attend
to and/or observation of procedures related to the gastrointestinal (GI),
genitourinary (GU), and biliary systems; and attend to and/or observation of
procedure related to minor radiologic procedures. Execution of radiographic
procedures will be conducted under direct and indirect supervision. Additional
competencies and evidence of continued competencies will be obtained.
Offered: Fall semester
Prerequisite: RADS 1220.
Corequisite: RADS 1040.
RADS 2060 Radiographic Procedures III
Continues to develop the knowledge required to perform radiographic
procedures. Topics include: gastrointestinal (GI) procedures; genitourinary (GU)
procedures; biliary system procedures; and special procedures; anatomy and
routine projections of the cranium, facial bones, and sinuses; sectional anatomy
of the head, neck, thorax and abdomen.
Offered: Spring semester.
Prerequisite: RADS 1040; RADS 1230.
Corequisite: RADS 2240.
RADS 2130 Imaging Science II
Content is designed to impart an understanding of the components, principles
and operation of digital imaging systems found in diagnostic radiology. Factors
that impact image acquisition, display, archiving and retrieval are discussed.
Guidelines for selecting exposure factors and evaluating images within a digital
system assist students to bridge between film-based and digital imaging
systems, with a knowledge base in radiographic, fluoroscopic, mobile and
tomographic equipment requirements and design. This content also provides a
basic knowledge of quality control, principles of digital system quality assurance
and maintenance are presented. Content is designed to provide entry-level
radiography students with principles related to computed tomography (CT)
imaging, and other imaging modalities (i.e., MRI, US, NM, Mammography) in
terms of purpose, principles, equipment/material, and procedure. Topics include:
imaging equipment, digital image acquisition and display, and basic principles of
CT and other imaging modalities. Topics include: imaging equipment, digital
image acquisition and display, and basic principles of CT and other imaging
Offered: Fall semester.
Prerequisite: CISM 2201; RADS 1120.
Corequisite: None.
RADS 2140 Pathology for the Imaging Professional
Content is designed to introduce the student to concepts related to disease and
etiological considerations. Pathology and disease as they relate to various
radiographic procedures are discussed with emphasis on radiographic
appearance of disease and impact on exposure factor selection. Topics include:
fundamentals of pathology, trauma/physical injury, and systematic classification
of disease.
Offered: Summer semester.
Prerequisites: RADS 1000, ALHE 1120; BIOL 1100K.
Corequisite: None.
