RAD217 Radiographic Imaging 3
This course will further explore radiographic computer applications and equipment, continuing a comprehensive understanding of the components, principles, and operation of digital imaging systems found in diagnostic radiology. Students will learn networking, basic computer principals, factors that impact image acquisition, display, archiving and retrieval to include a study of the design and function of Digital Radiography (DR), digital imaging workstations, post-processing, and Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS). The elements of a quality improvement program, and various aspects of preventative and corrective maintenance related to quality assurance of the components of the radiographic imaging system will also be covered. Upon successful course completion students will have a better understanding of digital imaging in order to provide both optimal imaging and patient care.
