RADT 207 - Radiologic Technology IV

(TP/SS only)

Advanced radiographic modalities, procedures and equipment. Advanced contrast studies including angiography, interventional studies, arthrography, myelography, genitourinary system studies, and biliary system studies are covered. Identification of pathologies commonly diagnosed by various imaging modalities (computed tomography, MRI, mammography, sonography, nuclear medicine, PET CT, DEXA) is presented. Instruction in cross sectional anatomy and the components of computed tomography imaging are presented. Basic pharmacology concepts as required by ASRT are discussed. Review of the anatomical structures of the major body systems is included. Review of medicolegal considerations for imaging. PREREQUISITE(S): RADT 206  or consent of program coordinator. COREQUISITE(S): RADT 225  and RADT 240 . Two hours each week. Formerly RT 207.

2 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

  • Review the function of the anatomy and physiology of major body systems.
  • Identify and explain the function of advanced imaging modality principles and their applications. (CT,MRI, Mammography, Nuclear Medicine, Sonography, PET CT, DEXA )
  • Identify pathologies best visualized  in advanced radiographic procedures
  • Identify and explain contraindications and indications for advanced radiographic procedures and typical physiological functions in the body systems.
  • Recognize purposes, lists component parts, and describe steps necessary in utilizing specialized interventional equipment.
  • Differentiate between the generations of CT scanners.
  • Recognize and identify the components of a CT scanner
  • Identify anatomy from radiographs and CT and MRI scans
  • Review artifacts and resolution (spatial and contrast) of a CT scan
  • Identify/describe data acquisition process and  the post processing procedures in advanced modalities
  • Review and apply medicolegal terms as they relate to imaging studies and professional behavior.
  • Review principles of pharmacology and drug administration as the relate to contrast and drugs used for patients in the Radiology department.
