RTE 2834 - Radiology Practicum IV - AS


3 credits
Prerequisites: RTE 1824  with a grade of “C” or better
This course is designed to provide the 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, Angiography 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; and surgical protocol and radiography of more acute patients. The student will demonstrate competence in radiographic procedures of the cranium, facial bones, pediatric imaging of the chest, trauma cervical spine imaging, a selected ARRT radiographic procedure, and a special procedure category. Students will also utilize critical thinking skills in the performance of advanced radiographic procedures on difficult patients. These Level II competencies will include mobile orthopedic imaging, operating room radiologic procedure, and a trauma upper and lower extremity exam that are drawn from previous semester’s material in which a student has proven competent. Additionally, students will demonstrate problem solving techniques in the performance of radiographic procedures in which they were previously deemed competent on more acute patients.
