Prerequisites: RTE 1814  with a grade of "C" or better
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, CT suite, and the operating room allow students to attain increased proficiency and independence in radiography room equipment manipulation; image receptor handling and processing; accessory equipment usage; contrast media usage and preparation; patient care and safety; fluoroscopy procedures of more critical patients; surgical protocol and procedures; and advanced radiography of acute patients. The student will demonstrate competence in routine spine imaging, imaging of the bony thorax, trauma shoulder, and mobile C-arm procedure. Students will also utilize critical thinking skills in the performance of advanced radiographic procedures on difficult patients. These Level II competencies will include mobile imaging, fluoroscopic procedures, and an exam that is drawn from previous semester's material that a student has proven competent. The student will observe and assist in imaging of the cranium, facial bones, and procedures performed in the CT suite.
