RADS 204: Radiographic Positioning & Procedures I This course will require the student to implement previously learned positioning terminology and techniques used in radiography from RADS 101 and RADS 117, for utilization of proper positioning to ensure high quality images. The course will focus on correlated anatomy, positioning and image critique of the upper and lower extremities, abdomen and chest; as well as an introduction to the digestive and urinary systems. Prerequisites: RADS 101, 117, 120, BIOL 108, 109, 110, 111 3 credits, Spring RADS 205: Radiographic Positioning & Procedures Lab I This is a “hands on” course for radiographic positioning of the upper and lower extremities, abdomen and chest. Image evaluation and anatomical correlation are integrated into proper positioning procedures and image critique. Prerequisites: RADS 101, 117, 120, BIOL 108, 109, 110, 111 1 credit, Spring RADS 206: Clinical Radiography 3 This course is sequential to RADS 120 and is designed to develop performance skills necessary for competency exams through directly supervised clinical experience. Orientation to clinical education centers includes policies and procedures and OSHA requirements. The student will start to integrate the principles and theories learned in the classroom into the clinical setting. This will include aspects of the methodology of a radiographic procedure including but not limited to the RIS/HIS system, patient care, control panel set-up (manual/ AEC), room set-up, patient transfer, radiation protection, patient positioning, image evaluation, and patient discharge. 4 credits, Summer RADS 214: Radiographic Positioning and Procedures II Continuation of radiographic studies including urinary system, digestive system, proximal humerus and should girdle, pelvis, hip and femur and vertebral column. Prerequisites: All previous RADS and Biology courses. 2 credits, Fall RADS 215: Radiographic Positioning Lab II This is a “hands on” course for the radiographic positioning of the body parts and systems covered in RADS 214. Image evaluation and laboratory exposures on the phantom are performed to correlate the anatomy studied. Simulated competencies are also completed. The student will continue to set appropriate control panel settings for specific procedures and projections. The student will make control panel adjustments based on image evaluation. Prerequisites: All previous RADS and Biology courses 1 credit, Fall RADS 216: Clinical Radiography 4 This course is sequential to RADS 206. It consists of 32 hours per week of directly or indirectly supervised clinical experience as appropriate to the student’s level of competency. Students prepare for competency in more complex examinations as well as work independently in areas of completed competency. The student will continue to integrate the principles and theories learned in the classroom into the clinical setting. This will include aspects of the methodology of a radiographic procedure including but not limited to the RIS/ HIS system, patient care, control panel set-up (manual/ AEC), room set-up, patient transfer, radiation protection, image evaluation, correctly applying the theories and principles of digital imaging, and patient discharge. 4 credits, Fall RADS 218: Advanced Exposure This course will cover film screen image processing to include the darkroom, the automatic processor. Digital image acquisition and display will include components, principles and operation of digital imaging systems. Principles of quality assurance and maintenance of both film/screen and digital systems will be presented. Evaluation of digital images will be a consistent theme throughout the course. 2 credits, Spring
