RTE 2844 - Radiology Practicum V - AS


2 credits
Prerequisites: RTE 2834  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, operating room, and optional rotations through MRI, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, CT, and Special Procedures. These rotations 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 advanced radiography of acute patients. Students will also utilize critical thinking skills in the performance of more advanced radiographic procedures (LII competency) on difficult patients. These Level II competencies will include mobile imaging of an acute care patient, a more complex operating room radiologic procedure, and an exam performed in the radiology department drawn from previous five semester’s material in which a student has proven competent. Additionally, students will demonstrate advanced problem-solving techniques in the performance of radiographic procedures in which they were previously deemed competent on more acute patients.
