Computed Tomography

Anglia Ruskin University

Course Description

Course overview Course content will develop your understanding of scientific principles and enhance your knowledge and skills in clinical applications. By the time you graduate, you will be able not only to critically evaluate Computed Tomography (CT) images, but also to evaluate the emotional impact of the examination upon the patient. In your final year, your Major Project will give you the opportunity to carry out a significant piece of research and to make a genuine contribution to the field of Computed Tomography . Core modules Scientific Principles of CT Level 3 - This distance learning module provides a comprehensive knowledge to the physical principles that underpin the safe use of Computed Tomography . The module will expect students to relate the underlying physical principles of Computed Tomography including its use in clinical practice, particularly in terms of the development, adaptation and modification of scanning protocols. This module introduces the student to both basic and then advanced concepts. Applied Research in Health Practice Level 4 - This module is designed to enable students to confidently approach professional research. There is particular emphasis on the selection, application, analysis and evaluation of a range of research methods. The learning outcomes have been developed to permit students to undertake work-based activities in their exploration of applied research. Consideration of the ethical dimensions of health care research is a key feature of the module. This module will assist students in their undertaking of project or dissertation relating to health care. CT Clinical Applications 1 - This module is designed to examine the theory and practice of clinical Computed Tomography of the head and spine. Students will be expected to discuss and evaluate their own practice, specifically relating to protocols, patient management, technique and normal and abnormal anatomical Computed Tomography appearances. Throughout the module the student will collect evidence, for presentation in a Portfolio , of their achievement of the outcomes of the module. CT Clinical Applications 2 - This module is designed to examine the theory and practice of clinical Computed Tomography of the musculoskeletal system. Students will be expected to analyse, discuss and evaluate their own practice, specifically relating to protocols, patient management, technique and normal and abnormal anatomical Computed Tomography appearances. It is expected that the student will assess current protocols, suggesting and justifying possible modifications. Throughout the module the student will collect evidence, for presentation in a Portfolio , of their achievement of the outcomes of the module. CT Clinical Applications 3 - This module is designed to examine the theory and practice of clinical body Computed Tomography . Students will be expected to analyse, discuss and evaluate their own practice, specifically relating to protocols, patient management, technique and normal and abnormal anatomical Computed Tomography appearances. It is expected that the student will assess current protocols, suggesting and justifying possible modifications. This module will also consider Quality Assurance issues within body Computed Tomography . Throughout the module the student will collect evidence, for presentation in a Portfolio , of their achievement of the outcomes of the module. Dissertation Assessment Assessment is via worksheets, essays and a portfolio of evidence. Dedication : part-time.
