Digital Radiography - optimising your ability to use digital radiographs in practice.
Digital radiographs are now widespread in veterinary practice but the transition to digital does not always mean better image quality.
This short course will help you understand what your digital system is and will review simple radiographic principles to improve your image quality. You will learn how to share your digital images for a second opinion and develop a better understanding of how to get the sharpest lung detail, the best abdominal contrast and the crispest trabecular bone detail.
Note: Participants will need access to a functional X-ray tube and digital radiography unit. If they have film-screen radiography, they may still do the course but may not be able to implement some of the learning outcomes.
By successfully completing this course, you will be able to:
- Identify which radiographic equipment they have in practice
- Better approach optimising the image quality from their equipment
- Explain file storage (PACS)
- Share digital images
- Apply an understanding of what factors they need to change to make significant image quality improvements
- Best position thorax, abdominal and MSK radiographs, regardless of dog or cat shape.
- What digital system do I have? (Image acquisition)
- How does my x-ray generator fit into this? (Image generation)
- Radiographic positioning and technique – thorax and abdomen
- Radiographic positioning and technique - musculoskeletal
