Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

This course articulates with the second year Medical Imaging Methods one and two, and aims to extend the knowledge base of the student to enable the practice of advanced medical imaging examinations.

Refer to the current program summary (available online) for pre-requisite and co-requisite courses.

Course Description

This course focuses upon contemporary practices in advanced medical imaging technology. Each module is designed to complement the clinical practice course by exploring theoretical concepts relevant to practical clinical imaging. Significant emphasis is placed on technology development and contrast enhanced imaging procedures in each of the modules.

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

The main objective of this course is for students to demonstrate an understanding of advanced imaging procedures in a holistic manner.
The capabilities addressed include the ability to discuss the application of medical imaging procedures and technologies with professional colleagues and the wider healthcare community, including patient preparation for each modality, and any biological risk associated with the use of ionising radiation. Life long learning outcomes are emphasised by enhancing students capabilities in critically reviewing published peer reviewed literature relevant to radiological and associated imaging procedures

Overview of Learning Activities

Formal lectures are utilised to introduce and explore each topic area, and to guide self-directed study activities.

Overview of Learning Resources

The course has an entry on the Learning Hub and students will be referred to this site at the commencement of semester. This resource provides a range of materials aimed at supporting learning activities throughout the semester and students are encouraged to actively use this site and the material it contains. Students are also expected to conduct a significant level of self-directed learning to reinforce the concepts discussed in formal lectures. There is a particular expectation that students will access appropriate peer reviewed journal articles via the RMIT library.

Overview of Assessment

Students are required to successfully complete a range of assessment activities to complete this course.
