NARROW FIELD 0615 RADIOGRAPHY
RADIOGRAPHY is the study of technologies which use ionising and non-ionising (e.g. ultrasound) radiation for producing diagnostic images and administering radiation therapy.
The main purpose of this narrow field of education is to develop an understanding of the principles and practice of radiographic imaging and treatment.
Courses in Narrow Field 0615 Radiography develop skills in:
. calculating duration and intensity of radiation doses
. positioning patients, screens and equipment accurately
. preparing radioactive materials and operating imaging equipment
This narrow field comprises the following detailed field:
