RAD 434
Elective ( )
First semester ( )
Second semester (√ )
Brief contents:
In this course the experience acquired during, Radiographic Technique VI Course will be applied in real
clinical situation. Student will be assigned to emergency room. In first week student will observe
modification of standard radiographic techniques according to the need of accident and emergency
patient. Under supervision and guidance of qualified radiologic technologist, student will take x-ray
examinations of injured and acutely ill patients. Student will also be assigned in rotation to mobile
radiography team. He/ she will go with radiologic technologist to attend call for x-ray examination of
patient in ICU, isolation room, patient room, nursery and other bedsides, using mobile x-ray equipment.
Student will also accompany radiologic technologist to operation theater to carry out x-ray examination
of patient using mobile C-arm image intensifier.
Course Objectives:
1. Identify the difference between dealing with regular patient and accident and emergency patient.
2. Modify and conduct the radiographic examination according to the need of injured and acutely ill
patient.
3. Operate mobile equipment and mobile C-arm image intensifier to take radiographic examination of
patient in
ICU, isolation and ward and in operation theater and modify technique according to situation.
4. Carefully handle the patient and work in reasonably short time.
