Learning outcomesUpon successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Evaluate and justify use of appropriate imaging protocols with modified radiographic imaging techniques, and the applications of instrumentation principles for both medical imaging contrast media and non-medical imaging contrast media specialised diagnostic and interventional medical imaging examinations for patients with critical complex health and medical conditions;
2. Critically analyse and discuss actions to be taken using an evidence based approach in the event of a critical patient care situation for both medical imaging contrast media and non medical imaging contrast media specialised diagnostic and interventional medical imaging examinations procedures and processes;
3. Critically reflect and discuss the implications for the patient in terms of healthcare professional team in terms of ethical considerations, professionalism and professional conduct in clinical practice situations when undertaking of medical imaging contrast media and non- medical imaging contrast media specialised diagnostic and interventional medical imaging examinations; and
4. Analyse and discuss the key components of both medical imaging contrast media and non medical imaging contrast media specialised diagnostic and interventional medical imaging examinations in terms of justification, dose optimisation, medical imaging equipment, image quality and risks and safety of staff and patients.

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.
Effectively engage and participate during scheduled lecture sessions.
Inclusion and engagement
The online quiz is undertaken on campus during a scheduled lecture session.
Fluoroscopic presentations are scheduled during the lecture sessions to foster peer learning opportunities. Each student is required to attend and actively engage throughout the various presented topics and discussions.
