This module aims to enable the student to critically evaluate the Computed Tomographic (CT) protocols used in clinical practice with respect to the evidence base in order to inform service delivery and practice policy.
The learning in the module will utilise the knowledge and understanding gained in the Computed Tomography module, which is a pre-requisite, and apply it to the student's own clinical practice. Evidence-based content will be delivered by Faculty experts with support from the technical and clinical fields.
Students will be encouraged to identify the evidence base and critique clinical practice and protocols. In the clinical workplace students will undertake clinical CT examinations of a wide range of anatomical regions/systems for a variety of clinical indications, gaining experience of advanced practice where applicable.
Tutorials will be used to facilitate peer learning and sharing of information by students. Case scenarios will facilitate group discussion and enhance the student`s confidence in debating and justifying imaging techniques.
