RADT 2784 - Clinical Radiography IV

Credits: 8
Hours/Week: Lecture NoneLab None
Course Description: Students continue their clinical experiences and have an opportunity to rotate to another clinical facility. Students will perform radiographic procedures with limited supervision, emphasizing proficiency in trauma, bedside, and specialized radiographic procedures. Students will select an optional rotation from among various special imaging modalities. Students will assist with and perform radiographic procedures under the direction of a qualified practitioner at affiliated clinical sites. State regulations regarding safe operation of radiation-generating equipment will be followed and proper radiation safety practices will be adhered to. Students must be able to perform physical tasks to complete course requirements.
