Learning outcomesOn successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of the physical principles and instrumentation underpinning the clinical applications of ultrasound and MRI;
2. Describe safety issues and some of the potential biological effects of the use of ultrasound, radio-waves and strong magnetic fields as used clinically in ultrasound and MRI examinations;
3. Describe the image formation and spatial encoding used in MRI and be able to describe the image formation and basic principles of Doppler in ultrasound;
4. Describe the imaging protocol and techniques of the major clinical applications in ultrasound and MRI; and
5. Recognise and describe anatomical structures and common pathologies as depicted in ultrasound and MR images.

Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All assessment items must be attempted. Students must obtain an aggregate result of greater or equal to 50% to pass this unit.
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
