What you'll learn

Radiography is a booming branch in medical science that enables clinicians to study the structures internally with devices that work with electricity, rays and sound waves. It is the basic tool in clinical medicine and dentistry which can be used for diagnosis and treatment purposes. Radiographic technologists or technicians assist in the diagnosis and management of human illness by producing diagnostic images (also called radiographs or X-rays) of relevant patient anatomy. They produce images by utilizing rays like X- rays, gamma rays, or similar ionizing and non ionizing radiation to view the internal structures in the body.read more »»

During the first two decades, radiography was only to diagnose the diseases, fractures during world war. Initially conventional radiographic techniques with only a few planes have been introduced but as time advanced, newer and more sophisticated techniques have been developed which are enabling the clinicians and radiologists to study deeper into the structures of the body. The scope of radiography has been extended to include some treatments of cancer by using agents as hormones and chemotherapeutic drugs.

Knowledge on How a scatter radiation affects image contrast and how to control scatter, How to apply radiographic grids to a clinical situation, The role of exposure factors in radiographic images, How to identify and manage the various factors that can affect image quality, including film, geometric and subject factors are very important for any clinician to appropriately diagnose the patient at right time and treat accordingly.
This theory module teaches you the key concepts that underpin radiographic imaging such as scatter radiation, exposure, and field size, and the tools and techniques available to create high-quality X-ray images.

It covers important foundational knowledge that is required in order to perform radiographic procedures accurately and manage the factors that affect X-ray image quality. If you are studying for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® (ARRT) registry exams, this module is an ideal resource.
