RAD 102 W - Image Production and Evaluation II
Advanced study of the factors contributing to the radiographic image and evaluation. This course is designated as a writing emphasis course.
Prerequisite: RAD 101 Image Production and Evaluation I
3 Class Hours, 1 Laboratory Hour
Learning Outcomes of the Course:
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
- Identify and describe the basic fundamentals of x-ray production, analyze and perform calculations of exposure techniques, image magnification, percent magnification, penumbra, beam restriction, and half-value layer (HVL) formulas.
- Describe the possible fates of x-ray photons interacting with matter and how various beam limitations and grids can control scatter.
- Identify and describe the anatomical and pathological factors that affect the radiographic image.
- Perform and describe how the image receptor responds to automatic exposure control or manual techniques, and the various tools and charts that are used to evaluate this response.
- Perform, identify and describe image analysis.
