RAD 124: Principles of Radiographic Exposure
This course is a continuation of material presented in RAD 111. The content of this course includes a comprehensive study of atomic theory, radiographic exposure technique, image production using analog and digital mediums, and the appropriate use of radiographic accessory devices. Students will learn theoretical principles for achieving optimal image quality and techniques for reducing patient radiation exposure. Laboratory sessions are included to provide a means of integrating theory with practical applications for use in the clinical setting. This course contains material previously taught in RAD 127.

What Students Say About Online Classes
“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”—Wendy L., 48
