Radiographic Imaging II (4)

Classification: Occupational

The purpose of this course is to provide the student with an understanding of the components, principles and operation of digital imaging systems found in diagnostic radiology. This content will be compared to a knowledge-base in factors that govern the image production process in film-screen imaging. Factors that impact image acquisition, display, archiving and retrieval are discussed. Guidelines for selecting exposure factors and evaluating images within a digital system assist students to bridge between film-based and digital imaging systems. Principles of digital system quality assurance and maintenance are presented. Actual images will be included for analysis including image artifacts.
