RADS 219: Imaging and Equipment This course covers atomic structure, electricity, xray equipment and circuitry, xray interactions in the tube and in tissue, image intensification and digital image capture. Prerequisites: All previous RADS and Biology courses. 3 credits, Fall RADS 224: Radiographic Positioning and Procedures III This course offers an in depth study of the skull, facial bones and sinuses. Also included are bony thorax, biliary system, arthrography, reproductive systems, specialty exams, and an introduction to the cardiovascular system, nervous system and sectional anatomy. Prerequisites: All previous RADS and biology courses. 3 credits, Spring RADS 225: Radiographic Positioning and Procedures Lab III This is a “hands on” course for radiographic positioning of the skull, facial bones, sinuses, bony thorax and biliary system. Radiographic exposures on the phantom are correlated with image evaluation and radiographic anatomy. A component strictly related identification of anatomy of the cardiovascular system and central nervous system anatomy using MRI and CT images is also included. Prerequisites: All previous RADS and biology courses. 1 credit, Spring RADS 226: Clinical Radiography 5 This course is sequential to RADS 216. It consists of direct or indirect supervised clinical experience as appropriate to the student's level of competency for 24 hours per week. Students prepare for competency in more complex examinations as well as work independently in areas of completed competencies. The student will continue to work toward a higher level of proficiency for all areas of 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. 3 credits, Spring RADS 252: Radiation Biology This course is divided into two parts. The first part deals with the types of ionizing radiation and their effects at the atomic, molecular and cellular levels. Genetic and somatic effects as related to acute and chronic doses of radiation are also discussed. The second part concentrates on medical diagnostic radiation – sources, exposure, dose limits, detection & measurement, design of equipment and rooms for maximum protection and reduction of dose. Prerequisites: All previous RADS and biology courses. 2 credits, Spring RADS 271: Introduction to Radiographic Pathology A study of the common pathologies seen radiographically. This course integrates the student's previous clinical experience and classwork with specific pathophysiology within the body systems. It is designed to offer the learner basic foundations of disease or injury, including clinical, pathological, and radiographic manifestations. Prerequisites: All previous RADS and biology courses. 1 credit, Spring RADS 285: Professional Seminar This course will assist the student in the development of an additional knowledge base to broaden the student’s understanding of total patient care. Venipuncture will be discussed and performed. Basic electrocardiography will be covered. Prerequisite: All previous RADS and BIOL courses 1 credit, Summer RADS 286: Clinical Radiography 6 This course is sequential to RADS 226. It consists of 32 hours per week of indirectly supervised clinical experience in all areas of completed competency. Students focus on developing efficiency and proficiency in their clinical skills. Electives to CT, MRI, sonography, cardiac and interventional procedures, nuclear imaging or radiation therapy may be arranged. 4 credits, Summer
