RAD 499 INDEPENDENT STUDY: CLINICAL

This course offers the student a clinical externship for the RAD 420, RAD 430, and RAD 440 courses of instruction. The course will allow the student to apply didactic instruction to the advanced imaging modality of choice in a clinical setting. Specific objectives, goals, clinical competencies, and clinical schedules will be developed with the student prior to the start of the clinical internship.

  • Prerequisites:

    Instructor permission

RAD 282 ADVANCED IMAGING MODALITIES

This course introduces the student to advanced imaging disciplines in the health science professions. Basic principles of Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACSs), Mammography, Bone Densitometry, Sonography, Nuclear Medicine, Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Radiation Therapy and other radiographic disciplines will be addressed.

  • Credits: 2.0

RAD 270 RADIOGRAPHIC SEMINAR

This course is designed as a capstone learning experience for the student in preparation of sitting for the A.R.R.T. certification examination in radiography.  Students prepare for professional employment and continuous learning by integrating and synthesizing their professional knowledge, skills, and attitude. Students demonstrate competencies for professional employment at the entry-level and the capacity to pursue lifelong professional growth.

  • Credits: 3.0
  • Prerequisites: Completion of all radiography professional coursework, excluding RAD 255 and RAD 222 taken concurrently.

RAD 265 CLINICAL PRACTICUM V

During this course of instruction, students attain completion of all clinical competencies as mandated by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (A.R.R.T.). Clinical attainment of radiographic procedures continues under direct/indirect supervision of a radiologic technologist, while providing patient care and focusing on previous radiographic skills acquired.  Students diversify their clinical knowledge as they explore additional learning opportunities in other advanced imaging modalities.

  • Credits: 3.0
  • Prerequisites: RAD 263

RAD 264 CLINICAL PRACTICUM IV

This course continues to center on student attainment of clinical competencies with various radiographic procedures. The student will continue to complete radiographic procedures under direct/indirect supervision of a radiologic technologist, while providing patient care and focusing on previous radiographic skills acquired.

  • Credits: 3.0
  • Prerequisites:

    RAD 261

RAD 261 CLINICAL PRACTICUM III

This course centers on the attainment of competencies that require higher levels of cognitive, affective, and psychomotor skills. Surgical radiographic procedures and fluoroscopy of physiological body systems are enhanced during this learning experience. Students gain a mastery of knowledge garnered from previous clinical assignments, focusing particularly on objective assessment of their acquired skill levels.

  • Credits: 4.0
  • Prerequisites: RAD 162

RAD 220L RADIOGRAPHIC PROCEDURES/POSITIONING III LAB

This course compliments RAD220 and demonstrates the practical application of radiographic positioning of the digestive system, urinary system, and radiographic headwork to include skull, facial bones, and paranasal sinuses. Students will critique radiographs for diagnostic quality, anatomy, positioning, and use of appropriate technical factors.

  

  • Credits: 1.0
  • Prerequisites: RAD 122, RAD 122L
