Assisting in Radiology/Imaging. Instructor's Guide, Student's Manual, and Student Learning Activities.
Fair, Helena J.
The instructor's guide, the first of three documents in this package, is designed for a course to help students who are investigating the activities within a radiology department or considering any of the imaging technologies as a career. The material is designed to relate training experience to information studied in the classroom. This instructor's manual provides a list of essential elements correlated to the units of instruction. A basic test, answers to tests, and answers to learning activities are included for each unit. The manual also contains a section for students desiring a more advanced study of each unit, and a competency chart. The student's manual, the second of the three documents, is designed for use by students investigating the activities within a radiology department or considering any of the imaging technologies as a career. The student's manual contains learning objectives, terms and definitions, and information relating to current techniques and technologies. Clinical use of radiation, procedures for film loading and development, and types of equipment are presented. Both radiation and biological safety are emphasized. New imagining technologies, such as ultrasound and magnetic resonance, are introduced. The materials in the first two documents are organized in 11 units: the radiologic technologist as a member of the health care team; the production of x-rays; equipment; protection from radiation and infection; radiology office records and procedures; patient care and transportation; radiographic film and the film holder; intensifying screens; radiographic darkrooms; processing radiographs; and artifacts. The student's manual also contains a glossary of 54 radiographic terms and a bibliography listing 14 references. Individualized student learning activities are provided (in the last of the three documents) to encourage students to read and study the information presented in the radiology and imaging course. One or more learning activities are included for each of the 11 course units. Learning materials consist of questions to answer, suggested research activities, matching tests, and labeling activities. (KC)
