Radiology Technician, 10-5. Military Curriculum Materials for Vocational and Technical Education.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.; Air Force Training Command, Sheppard AFB, TX.
These five volumes of student materials for a secondary/postsecondary level course in radiology technology comprise one of a number of military-developed curriculum packages selected for adaptation to vocational instruction and curriculum development in a civilian setting. The purpose stated for the course is to provide the theory portion of technician advanced training in radiology. The course contains useful information for a beginning student in radiology but is intended for advanced, on-the-job learning for students with prior training in the field. Each volume contains several chapters consisting of several learning objectives with text, text exercises, and an answer key to exercises. A volume review exercise with questions keyed to the text is provided, but no answers are available. The volumes cover these topics: radiographic fundamentals, osteology and positioning, special techniques (mammography, obstetrical radiography, tomography, and stereoscopic radiography), special procedures (contrast studies of the digestive, urogenital, respiratory, cardiovascular, and nervous systems), and general information and administration (muscular, integumentary, and endocrine systems; field radiography; and radiation therapy).
