|Student Learning Outcomes -|
- Determine proper exposure factors, patient care and anatomical positioning based on manifestations of pathological conditions related to respiratory, osseous, fractures, urinary, gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, central nervous, hemopoietic and endocrine systems
- Evaluate radiographic images of pathology of the respiratory, skeletal, urinary, gastrointestinal, central nervous, hemopoietic and endocrine systems in order to recognize the clinical manifestations while in the clinical setting.
