image analysis, diagnostic, education
The core responsibility of a radiologic technologist is the taking of optimal radiographic images suitable for diagnostic purposes, in order to ensure the patient obtains the full benefit of the examination. It is therefore critical to analyse each X-ray image thoroughly, using a step-by-step process, and take corrective action if necessary, in order to produce an optimal image.This information-rich module teaches you about radiographic image analysis, including how to manage the factors that affect image quality. It includes over 100 examples of X-ray images, explains how to assess the quality of each one, and details the specific corrective actions that can be taken to improve the image quality. This module is ideal if you are studying for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® (ARRT) registry exam.
