Imaging Procedures 2 will build upon your foundation knowledge and skills developed in Imaging Procedures 1 and during the first block clinical placement, with the goal of preparing you for your second block placement. On completion of this course, you should be able to perform routine radiographic examinations on ambulant adults of the axial musculoskeletal system including craniofacial structures. You will expand your image assessment and interpretation skills to radiography of the axial skeleton. You will be introduced to safe practice and performance of mobile radiography of the chest and abdomen. You will learn principles of mammography and theatre imaging, building on the instrumentation knowledge gained in MEDI12005 Science and Instrumentation 2. This course includes a large practical and simulated experiential learning element performed in the digital radiological laboratories and imaging workstations to enhance readiness for clinical placement.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability.

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).
Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.
|1. Practical Assessment||10%|
|2. Practical Assessment||50%|
|3. In-class Test(s)||40%|
|4. Practical Assessment||0%|
This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
