PURPOSE This course will enhance and expand the student s technical knowledge and ability to control the radiographic exposure and image STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES The student will 1 Have the technical ability to work in either film screen imaging or digital imaging 2 Have the basic skills required for conventional or digital fluoroscopy 3 Select technical factors and accessory equipment that control and or influence radiographic exposure and imaging 4 Formulate techniques to optimize image quality minimize patient exposure and preserve equipment 5 Assess radiographic images for diagnostic quality COURSE OBJECTIVES The student will be able to 1 Identify the primary technical factors controlling radiographic exposure optical density contrast and recorded detail 2 Identify the characteristics that affect image quality 3 Identify the radiographic image factors that make detail visible 4 Identify the radiographic image factors that affect recorded detail 5 Identify the imaging system components that affect radiographic technique selection 6 Identify the imaging system components that affect radiographic image quality 7 Assess a radiographic image for diagnostic optical density contrast and recorded detail 1 8 Identify and adjust appropriate factors to assure radiographic image quality 9 Compare conventional film screen imaging systems to digital imaging systems 10 Compare computed radiography to digital radiography EVALUATION METHODS The course grade will be determined by a combination major exams and a comprehensive final exam The following guidelines will be followed regarding exams The student is expected to complete a major exam at the scheduled time Make up major exams will not be given If one major exam is missed for any reason the percentage value of that exam is added to the weight of the final exam grade Any additional missed major exam will result in a zero being recorded for the missed exam A student arriving late for a major exam will not be allowed to take the exam if any student has completed the exam and left the classroom All major exams must be completed within the designated class time Major exams will be returned to the student to be corrected in class One half credit will be awarded for each successful correction and added to the original grade A comprehensive final exam will be given during the time designated by South Plains College This exam will NOT be corrected for additional points Cell phones cannot be used as calculators during class No exceptions It is the responsibility of the student to bring an appropriate calculator to class Students will not be allowed to share calculators during any assignment or exam ACADEMIC INTEGRITY It is the aim of the faculty of South Plains College to foster a spirit of complete honesty and a high standard of integrity The attempt of any student to present as his or her own any work which he or she has not honestly performed is regarded by the faculty and administration as a most serious offense and renders the offender liable to serious consequences possibly suspension Cheating Dishonesty of any kind on examinations or on written assignments illegal possession of examinations the use of unauthorized notes during an examination obtaining information during an examination from the textbook or from the examination paper of another student assisting others to cheat alteration of grade records illegal entry or unauthorized presence in the office are examples of cheating Complete honesty is required of the student in the presentation of any and all phases of coursework This applies to quizzes of whatever length as well as final examinations to daily reports and to term papers Plagiarism Offering the work of another as one s own without proper acknowledgment is plagiarism therefore any student who fails to give credit for quotations or essentially identical expression of material taken from books encyclopedias magazines and other reference works or from themes reports or other writings of a fellow student is guilty of plagiarism SCANS and FOUNDATION SKILLS Scans and foundation skills are identified for specific course objectives A complete list explaining these skills is attached to the back of the syllabus for your information 2 SPECIFIC COURSE INFORMATION TEXT AND MATERIALS Bushong Stewart C
