Procedures

  • Elbow Joint

    In this module, you will review the anatomy of the elbow joint and learn the positioning steps and image evaluation criteria for the projections and learn the classification, mobility type, and movement type of the elbow joint.

  • Knee Joint

    In this module, you will review the anatomy of the knee joint, learn the positioning steps, and image evaluation criteria for the projections.

  • Lumbar Spine

    In this module, the learner will review the anatomy of the lumbar spine on drawings, bones, and radiographs and use positioning checkpoints and radiographic checkpoints for imaging of the lumbar spine.

  • Pelvis and Hip

    In this module, you will learn to identify on drawings, bones, and radiographs the anatomy of the sacrum, coccyx, pelvis, and hip and the positioning and radiographic checkpoints for imaging of the sacrum, coccyx, pelvis, and hip. You will also learn the standard positioning checkpoints.

  • Rib Radiography

    In this module, you will review the anatomy of the ribs and various positions used in rib radiography.

    This unit also includes appropriate projections/positions to demonstrate various rib injuries and explains the rationale behind these projections and breathing instructions for optimal rib imaging.

  • Shoulder Girdle

    In this module, you will study the anatomy routine projections, proper positioning steps for the scapula and clavicle this includes source-to-image distance (SID), central ray (CR) angle and direction, and breathing instructions for the patient.

  • Shoulder Joint

    In this module, you will review the anatomy of the shoulder (proximal humerus and scapula) and routine projections and projections taken for trauma radiography of the shoulder.

  • Sternum Radiography

    In this module, you review the anatomy, learn the standard positions used for imaging the sternum,  review the proper positioning steps for optimal sternum imaging, and learn the breathing instructions for the lateral and posterior oblique projections of the sternum.

    You will also learn the alternative projections that can be used in trauma radiography of the sternum.
