Tricks of the Radiology Trade: Interactive Roundtable Discussion

April 27, 2019
8:30 am โ€“ 11:30 am
  • Nancy Bouchard
  • Mary Ellen Sholes, A.A.S.

In this dynamic, student-centered, interactive roundtable discussion, the focus is on you and your special, unique questions and challenges. Ask your most pressing questions and learn best practices for stress-free approaches to exposing radiographs. Active participation is not just encouraged – it is essential. In this non-traditional small-group workshop, participants will drive the agenda. You will have the opportunity to try hands-on approaches to different techniques and equipment. Although each course takes its own shape, the curriculum inevitably reviews the basics of how to expose a fantastic radiograph and covers the tricks and tips to adapt to the larger digital sensor.

Learning Objectives:
1) Discuss the different approaches for imaging in difficult situations.
2) Enumerate possible techniques to minimize gagging in patients.
3) Develop techniques for placing bulky digital sensors.

Course Number: S1903
