Description: This course is a continuation of Radiographic Positioning and Anatomy I and II with a focus on new procedures and the advancement of positioning skills. Lecture/laboratory covers the fundamentals of anatomy, sectional anatomy, radiographic positioning of the cranium and procedural considerations for arthrography, myelography, venography and pediactric imaging.



Prerequisites: Limited to Rad Tech cohort, RAD 110, RAD 160

Corequisites:

Recommendations: The content of this course is compliant with American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) Radiography Curriculum which serves as a blueprint for the design of programs to correlate the profession’s standards and ensure that students will be prepared to take certification examinations offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and satisfies the requirements for accreditation by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
The Central Arizona College School of Radiologic Technology Advisory Committee recommends compliance with the professional standards of the Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).



Measurable Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Describe the nervous and sensory systems including the primary organs their structure, function and location.
2. Identify the structure and function of anatomy related to the cranium and associated with arthrography, myelography, venography and pediactric imaging.
3. Define the standard positioning terms related to procedures of the cranium, arthrography, myelography, venography and pediactric imaging.
4. Explain the general considerations for radiographic procedures of the cranium and for arthrography, myelography, venography and pediactric imaging including an evaluation of radiographic orders, patients with special needs, room preparation and patient communication.
5. Evaluate images of the cranium and arthrography, myelography, venography and pediactric imaging for positioning, centering, appropriate anatomy and overall image quality.
6. Cite the anatomy and structures visualized on images of the cranium, arthrography, myelography, venography and pediactric imaging.
7. Identify major anatomical structures found within sectional images.
8. Simulate the routine and special positions/projections for the cranium and procedural considerations for arthrography, myelography, venography and pediactric imaging.
Internal/External Standards Accreditation
Students will achieve a level of competency as outlined by the compendium of learning objectives for Radiographic Procedures (p. 95) and Human Structure and Function (p 93-94) of the Radiography Curriculum (2007)established by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and recognized as a standard for accreditation by Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) and meet the Professional Requirements specified in Section 2.02 of the ARRT Rules and Regulations and identified in the Competency Requirements for Primary Certification of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
