Course Overview

Discover the importance of x-ray technology and learn how to use the associated machines with care and efficiency when you take our comprehensive Radiography course. X-rays have been critical in helping medicine and science gain an understanding of the skeletal system and workings of the inner body. With this training, you can gain an acute awareness of the history of radiography, along with the physics and practical uses that it’s put to in medical facilities and dental practices.

The contents of each online module provide an in-depth explanation of the science regarding x-rays and how to use them without causing harm to yourself or others. You will be shown how the first radiographic images were produced, how radiobiology operates, and how medical and dental radiography has become essential for practices worldwide. Additionally, you will also be taught how to protect yourself from radiation during radiographic examinations and how to safely x-ray different parts of the human body for analysis.

Key Topics to Be Covered

  • The history and physics of radiology and x-ray technology
  • Effects of radiology on DNA and molecular radiobiology
  • Preventing patients and operators from receiving high doses of radiation
  • Digital and computer-generated forms of radiography
  • Taking radiographic images from all areas of the human body

Learning Outcomes

  • Instant access to the latest developments involving x-ray technology    
  • Full participation in interactive exercises regarding radiography uses
  • Quick assessment and guidance for all related subjects and research
  • CPD accreditation for proof of acquired skills and knowledge
  • Freedom to study in any location and at a pace that suits you
