8 Curriculum Computed and Digital Technology –Change/adapt/modify positioning patients –Exposure factors are more abstract –Radiation protection “over-exposing” Positioning –Addition of computed and digital didactic information and removal of film/screen technology –Gallbladder and Biliary duct –T-tube cholangiograms and ERCP’s –Mastoids and petrous pyramids

9 Curriculum Film Tomography Dexa and Mammo Didactic CT CT rotation Clinical hours Variety/Volume/1:1 capacity

10 Curriculum Repeat Policy –The presence of a qualified radiographer during the repeat of an unsatisfactory image assures patient safety and proper educational practices. A qualified radiographer must be physically present during the conduct of a repeat image and must approve the student’s procedure prior to re-exposure. Indirect/Direct Policy – Students must be under direct supervision while achieving competence. Direct supervision is defined as the registered radiographer must review the request for examination in relation to the student achievement, review the condition of patient in relationship to student’s knowledge, be present during the examination and review and approve the radiographs. Once competency has been achieved, the student will be under indirect supervision. Indirect supervision is defined as the radiographer must review, evaluate and approve procedure and is IMMEDIATELY available
