RAD*172, Radiographic Clinical Practicum II (2 Credits)
Students continue to practice clinical skills in the general radiographic areas of diagnostic imaging with supervised clinical practice.  Prerequisites:  RAD*105, RAD*109 and RAD*171.

RAD*200, Radiologic Physics & Diagnostic Imaging Modalities (3 credits)   
This course provides the student with advanced study of fluoroscopy, physics, computed radiography, digital radiography, digital fluoroscopy, and quality assurance/quality control techniques used to evaluate radiographic imaging equipment.  Prerequisites: RAD*209, RAD*172, RAD*219 and RAD*204.

RAD*204, Radiographic Anatomy & Procedures II (3 credits)   
The student will continue task objectives and competencies in general radiographic procedures and related anatomy, medical terminology, and image evaluation.  Prerequisites: RAD*105, RAD*109 and RAD*171.

RAD*206, Quality Assurance (3 credits)    
This course is a continuation in the advanced study of fluoroscopy, physics, computed radiography, digital radiography, digital fluoroscopy, and the techniques and testing to evaluate and assess quality assurance.  Prerequisites:  RAD*240 and RAD*200.

RAD*209, Methods of Patient Care II (3 credits)    
This course is a continuation of the study of patient care procedures, techniques, and therapeutic practices in the radiology department, and is designed to prepare students to act quickly and effectively in case of medical emergency.  Additional topics will include contrast media, pharmacology, venipuncture, ECG and CPR.  Prerequisites:  RAD*105, RAD*109 and RAD*171.

RAD*215, Radiographic Pathology (3 credits)    
This course provides an overview of pathological conditions that are demonstrated by diagnostic imaging.  Lecture material will include the cause and treatment of the disease process.  Pediatric radiology is also presented.  A research paper and presentation is required.  Prerequisites:  RAD*240 and RAD*200.  This is an “L” course.

RAD*219, Radiographic Equipment and Image Production (3 credits)    
This introductory course will cover radiographic equipment with emphasis on image formation, radiation protection and safety, and the production and interaction of x-rays with matter.  Imaging accessories and their effect on radiographic quality will be discussed. Prerequisites:  RAD*105, RAD*109 and RAD*171.

RAD*222, Radiobiology and Protection (3 credits)    
This course is designed to present a clear understanding of all sources and use of medical radiation and the various types of equipment in a radiology department.  Includes the study of radioisotopes, the production of x-rays, imaging measurements of radiation and a basic understanding of the ways in which radiation interacts with the biological system.  Emphasis is also placed on the various methods of protection for both technologists and patients.  Prerequisites:  RAD*240 and RAD*200.

RAD*240, Radiographic Clinical Practicum III (4 credits)
Students continue to practice clinical skills in the general radiographic areas of diagnostic imaging with supervised clinical practice.  Prerequisites:  RAD*209, RAD*172, RAD*219 and RAD*204.

RAD*241, Radiographic Clinical Practicum IV (3 credits)    
Students continue to practice clinical skills in the general radiographic areas of diagnostic imaging with supervised clinical practice.  Prerequisites:  RAD*240 and RAD*200.

RAD*271, Advanced Clinical Internship (6 Credits)
The student will have the opportunity to refine skills learned earlier in the program with indirect supervision.  Students will perform a comprehensive final clinical competency in preparation to apply for the national registry examination.  Prerequisites:  RAD*222, RAD*215, RAD*206 and RAD*241.
