CHIR6410 has four modules:
Module 1 is the study of the principles of radiation physics and the current technology of radiographic equipment, and will run from Week 1 to Week 3.
Module 2 is the study of the principles and practice of image production and image processing techniques, and will run from Week 4 to Week 8, and Week 12.
Module 3 describes the biological effects of radiation as well as current radiation protection techniques, and will run from Week 9 to Week 11.
Module 4 will cover normal radiographic anatomy of the spine, and will run from Week 3 to Week 13, comprising online weekly workbooks.
2-hour online lectures each week will be available before Tuesdays 2-4pm.
ONLINE PRACTICAL SESSIONS
3 x 3-hour online practical sessions per student as scheduled, starting week 2. You will be divided into separate groups and will attend the appropriate weeks as indicated on the schedule, available on the unit iLearn page.
5 x 1-hour tutorial sessions per student as scheduled. You will be divided into separate groups and attend alternate weeks. Schedule will be available in Week 1.
Module 4 will be presented as a series of weekly online workbooks containing videos and formative activities. It is expected that you complete these workbooks on a weekly basis. You will access the online workbooks accessed through the CHIR6410 iLearn page.
The web page for this unit can be found at: https://ilearn.mq.edu.au and following the links for either Postgraduate or Undergraduate students. There is a combined iLearn page for HLTH3140 and CHIR6410 students. This will contain all information and assessments for modules 1-3.
For module 4, all information and assessments will be presented on the individual CHIR6410 ilearn page. Please ensure that you stay up to date with both ilearn pages
