HMI105 is a Clinical Placement unit.


This unit represents stage two of the novice to practitioner developmental continuum and furthers the principles of patient centred and team-based approaches to clinical practice. It adopts problem based and case based simulations to formalise patient management principles in medical imaging examination protocols. This component of the unit is integrated with simulated practice scenarios involving exposure selection; dose calculation and safe radiation practice procedures so that competent operation, performance and quality assurance measures are implemented when using diagnostic imaging equipment.

Simulated clinical examinations and supervised clinical exposure to patients will enable students to apply these principles across a range of examinations involving the shoulder and pelvic girdles, the vertebral column, the bony thorax and respiratory system, and the plain abdomen.

The unit concludes with an introduction to normal surface and gross anatomical relationships of the major skeletal and soft tissue structures of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis.
