RADT 102 - Radiologic Technology II
A continuation of RADT 101 with the presentation of more complex theories to further the knowledge of the student. A correlated laboratory will aid the student in synthesizing the material presented in class. Topics covered will be radiation safety and protection, X-ray machinery circuitry and design, analysis of common machine malfunctions and simple repairs, digital and computed radiography, and fluoroscopy. In addition, basic electronic theory will be presented so that the student will be able to understand the different circuits and functions of the circuits in modern X-ray. PREREQUISITE(S): A grade of C or better in mathematics foundation and RADT 101, or consent of program coordinator. COREQUISITE(S): RADT 112 and RADT 124. Three hours lecture, two hours laboratory each week. Formerly RT 102.
4 semester hours
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:
- Discuss technical factors, to include artifacts, and design a useable technique chart.
- Evaluate and contrast film quality based on spatial and contrast resolution using a characteristic curb.
- Compare and contrast the relationship between electricity and magnetism.
- Apply the rules of electricity and magnetism to a basic x-ray circuit.
- Identify basic x-ray components.
- Discuss alternative radiographic procedures performed in a general diagnostic room
- Identify key historical facts in the discovery of fluoroscopy.
- Identify and distinguish the difference parts of an image intensifier in fluoroscopy .
- Comprehend the different quality control tests for a diagnostic imaging room.
- Interpret a quality assurance program.
- Explain the different requirements needed in the design of a radiographic room in terms of radiation protection to the general public as well as to the diagnostic imaging personnel.
- List the recommended levels of radiation allowable to the public, patient and diagnostic imaging personnel.
