Course Objectives:

The objectives of this subject are:

  • Covers the practical application of radiography in the paramedical profession.
  • Includes principles of x-ray production, the operation and uses of x-ray machines, the care and development of films, and radiographic positioning of patients.
  • Prerequisites: Admission to the X-Ray Technology program.
  • Use an understanding of diagnostic quality images to determine options to correct deficiencies and to maximize diagnostic benefit and minimize radiation exposure based on repeated images.
  • Apply knowledge of the health risks and effective safety procedures and professional judgment to minimize risks to personnel and patients during radiographic procedures.

After completing this program-

  • The individual will be able to set up the X-ray, CT and MRI equipment’s to be used, ensure that safety precautions are taken to protect self, patient and staff from exposure to radiation
  • Trainee will be expertise in preparing and positioning the patient correctly for different radiological procedures
  • Able to prepare the room, apparatus and instruments for x-ray, CT scan, MRI
  • Explain use of contrast material used for CT scan or MRI and how to administer them under supervision of the radiologist.
  • Trainee will be able to manage a patient with contrast reactions and explain the use of protective materials
  • Can assist in the department of Radio-diagnosis
  • Can further pursue Diploma/ Degree courses in the same

Learning Record:

The trainee will submit a Practice/Project/Learning record after each class/session.

Assessment Process:

  • The assessment of the theory/knowledge will be based on a written test/viva-voce or both, while the skill test shall be hands-on practical.
