RADIOLOGIC SCIENCE (RADS)

300 Patient Assessment, Management, and Education (3-0-3). Explores numerous modalities in the radiologic and imaging sciences for future educational endeavors/advances. This course introduces a model fro critical thinking to aid in patient assessment. Includes the application of normal anatomy and physiological phenomena to ill and injured individuals.  Interviewing skills and assessment techniques with a clinical focus are stressed.  Emphasizes the analysis and interpretation of physiological data to assist in patient assessment and management.  PR:  Completion of AS in Radiologic Technology or related radiologic sciences, proof of certification in Radiography or other modality through ARRT, or permission of the instructor.

310 Quality in Imaging (3-0-3). Focuses on the production of high quality radiographic images.  PR: Completion of AS in Radiologic Technology or related radiologic sciences, proof of certification in Radiography or other modality through ARRT,  or permission of the instructor.

410  Healthcare Legal and Ethical Issues (3-0-3). Content is designed to provide a fundamental background in the law and regulatory issues of today’s healthcare culture.  Advanced legal terminology, concepts, and principles will be presented, discussed and applied in relation to clinical practice.  Radiologic Technologist scope of practice issues and situations will be investigated.  PR:  Completion of AS in Radiologic Technology or related radiologic sciences, proof of certification in Radiography or other modality through ARRT, or permission of instructor.

415  Communications in Healthcare (3-0-3).  Content is designed to expand the knowledge base and skills necessary for the practitioner to communicate effectively.  Existing communication skills will be enhanced to include professional presentations, business communications, and research publication and evaluation.  The practitioner’s role and responsibility with regard to written and oral communication will focus on patient education, advocacy and confidentiality.  A heightened awareness of human diversity will be emphasized.  PR:  Completion of AS in Radiologic Technology or related radiologic sciences, proof of certification in Radiography or other modality through ARRT, or permission of the instructor.
