This module aims to enable you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the physical principles and technology underpinning the acquisition, production and presentation of computed tomographic (CT) images, and to develop your ability to critically analyse and evaluate a broad range of CT imaging applications and protocols.
Lectures will introduce students to the physical principles of CT technology and the clinical applications of CT, delivered by Faculty experts with support from the technical and clinical fields.
Students will be exposed to current CT technology and its applications in clinical practice, encouraging reflection on their existing practice. Tutorials will be used to facilitate peer learning and sharing of information and directed study based on critiquing up to date literature and practice will be used to further stimulate the student's learning.

This module is provided as part of this interdisciplinary Framework within the Faculty of Health Studies. The Framework enables students to create an individualised programme of study that will meet either their needs and/or the employers’ needs for a changing diverse workforce within a modern organisation.
The modules and academic awards are presented in areas representing employment practice or work based or clinical disciplines.
Whilst some students can build their own academic awards by choosing their own menu of module options, other students will opt for a named academic award. The Framework also provides the option for students to move from their chosen named award to another award if their job or personal circumstances change and they need to alter the focus of their studies. The majority of named awards also offer students, the option of choosing at least one module, sometimes more, from across the Faculty module catalogue enabling them to shape their award more specifically to their needs.
Learning activities and assessment
Achievement of the learning outcomes will be demonstrated through the completion of a written examination based on the physical principles, and a second examination which involves responding to questions based on case studies with accompanying medical images.
All assessments within a module must achieve 40% to pass.
Career support and prospects
The module is designed to support healthcare practitioners develop the knowledge, understanding and skills in medical imaging that are required of a professional who aspires to work at an advanced level of practice.
