RDG-111 - Radiographic Positioning 1

3 credits
This course provides the basis for performing anatomic positioning. Anatomic positioning is the “art” of radiography. The final product, the radiograph, is dependent upon proper anatomic positioning, as well as the proper technical factors. The ultimate purpose of all positioning is to visualize specific parts of the body, free from superimposition of anatomic structures, and pathology. This course will include development of psychomotor skills in the application of ionizing radiation to produce diagnostic radiographs of the appendicular skeleton. The laboratory section of this course affords time for the student to demonstrate and practice the radiographic positions. The lab sessions simulate conditions or situations with patients in the radiology department.

Prerequisite(s): MAT 099 , MAT 093 , or MAT 097  (C- or better) or placement at college-level on math placement test.
