General Information


This unit focuses on developing your skills in performing routine radiographic examinations of the appendicular skeleton, shoulder, pelvis, thorax and abdomen on an ambulant adult at an advanced beginner level. You will demonstrate high levels of patient care and radiation safety. You will develop skills to evaluate radiographs with regard to image quality and determine if an image is diagnostic. The principles of image interpretation will be introduced and common trauma/disease processes of the chest, abdomen and musculoskeletal system explored. The practical and simulated experiential learning element of this unit is performed in the University's Medical Imaging clinical simulation laboratories. This supports your readiness to put your knowledge and skills to use in your first clinical placement.

Offerings For Term 1 - 2024


Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from SUTE and Medical Imaging Team discussions


Although the academic team considers the image critique portfolio as an effective learning and assessment tool, some students commented that the image critique portfolio was very time consuming.


Explicitly emphasise to the students about the role of the image critique portfolio and the weekly engagement required to complete the task.

Feedback from Student comments & SUTE


A minority of students commented that they would like more resources focusing on image interpretation and image anatomy.


Investigate resources to fit both outgoing Imaging Procedures 1 in 2024 and new Radiographic Anatomy and Appearances units in 2025.

Feedback from Student comments to coordinator & SUTE


Students found the labs and tutorials useful to apply their knowledge.


Maintain imaging labs and tutorials.
