This module aims to enable you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the physical principles and technology underpinning the acquisition, production and presentation of computed tomographic (CT) images, and to develop your ability to critically analyse and evaluate a broad range of CT imaging applications and protocols.
Lectures will introduce students to the physical principles of CT technology and the clinical applications of CT, delivered by Faculty experts with support from the technical and clinical fields.
Students will be exposed to current CT technology and its applications in clinical practice, encouraging reflection on their existing practice. Tutorials will be used to facilitate peer learning and sharing of information and directed study based on critiquing up to date literature and practice will be used to further stimulate the student's learning.
