RTE 1814 - Radiology Practicum II – AS


3 credits
This course is designed to provide students with clinical experience in a supervised radiologic setting. The student will put into practice the theories discussed in the accompanying RTE courses. Clinical rotations through selected areas of the Radiology Department and the operating room allow students to attain increased proficiency in radiography room equipment manipulation; image receptor handling and processing; accessory equipment usage; contrast media usage and preparation; patient care and safety; and surgical protocol and radiography of more acute patients. The student will demonstrate competence in fluoroscopic procedures, mobile imaging of the chest and abdomen, trauma hip imaging, a selected ARRT radiographic procedure, and mobile fluoroscopic equipment manipulation. The student will observe and assist with mobile fluoroscopic procedures in the operating room, radiographic procedures of the cranium, facial bones, and bony thorax under direct supervision by a registered technologist. Students will also utilize critical thinking skills in the performance of advanced radiographic procedures (LII competency) previously deemed competent on difficult patients. Additionally, students will demonstrate problem solving techniques in the performance of radiographic procedures in which they were previously deemed competent on more acute patients.
