This module will explore the academic theory behind the various Computed Tomography (CT) techniques and provide you with the knowledge and ability to make informed decisions and judgements about your clinical role.
In order to become a competent and professional member of the team you must understand all aspects of the role and appreciate the factors which can affect the final diagnoses. You must be able to critically analyse this information and apply it to the clinical setting.
It is essential that you be in a position which will enable you to keep up to date with current trends within the speciality of CT. Through the use of student discussions throughout the duration of the module you will be exposed to a range of current working protocols in use in a range of differing clinical settings. This information will enable you to make informed decisions concerning best practice in CT.
In order to undertake the assessments and for this module you must spend a minimum of six weeks in a clinical CT department while the module is running.
This module will provide you with an understanding of the principles and techniques available for use within CT and to allow you to apply your knowledge and skills to the clinical situation and become a confident and reflective practitioner.
