Image Analysis I
Content is designed to provide a basis for analyzing radiographic images. Included are
the importance of minimum imaging standards, discussion of a problem-solving
technique for image evaluation, and the factors that can affect image quality. Actual
images will be included for analysis. This course emphasizes the importance of
identifying and evaluating diagnostic images. Guidance is given in the selection of
accurate improvement methods. Knowledge and experience is also gained during
the first year clinical evaluations with the instructor, and through routine image
assessment during the Procedures course.
