Radiologic Technology Course Descriptions

Note: A student must be formally admitted to the Radiologic Technology program before taking any RAD courses.

RADT 1260 Radiographic Practicum I Credit Hrs: 2
Pre-Req: None
Co-Req: RADT 1390, RADT 1340, RADT 1380
This introduction course is designed for students to participate in radiographic examinations under approved supervision in the clinical setting. Experience in a variety of procedures will assist students in applying theory and developing specified levels of competence. Students will be engaged with the proper use of radiographic equipment, along with the development of skills in positioning, patient care, interpersonal communications, image analysis, and radiation safety practices. Competence at this introductory level will be evaluated and documented for a selected category of exams.
