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.
RADS 2150 Radiologic Science Review
Provides a review of basic knowledge from previous courses and helps the
student prepare for national certification examinations for radiographers. Topics
include: image production and evaluation; radiographic procedures; anatomy,
physiology, pathology, and terminology; equipment operation and quality control;
radiation protection; and patient care and education.
Offered: Fall semester.
Prerequisites: RADS 1100; RADS 2130; RADS 2140; RADS 2250; RADS 2060.
Corequisite: None.
RADS 2240 Clinical Imaging IV
Continues to provide students with intermediate learning experience in
hospital/clinical setting. Students continue to develop proficiency in executing
procedures introduced in Radiographic Procedures. Topics include: patient care;
radiation safety practices; behavioral and social competencies; performance
and/or observation of minor special procedures, special equipment use, and
participation in and/or observation of cranial and facial radiography. Execution of
radiographic procedures will be conducted under direct and indirect supervision.
Competencies and evidence of continued competencies will continue to be
Offered: Spring semester.
Prerequisite: RADS 1230.
Corequisite: RADS 2060.
