Course Content

Radiographers can expect to interact with clients who have been through a variety of diagnostic imaging tests such as medical ultrasound, computed tomography, medical magnetic resonance or nuclear medicine. They may tailor their professional practice towards the client as a result of these tests, or liaise directly with other healthcare professionals involved in other non-imaging based diagnostic testing such as physical assessment or electrocardiography to promote quality in patient management strategies. In order to optimise patient care, management and NHS resources it is essential that the radiographer understand the benefits and limitations of these
diagnostic options, together with the issues surrounding appropriateness of the test, its cost and availability.

By undertaking this module you would be in a position to advance and extend your professional practice.
