Module - Imaging with Ionising Radiation (SPE101)
Clinical experiential learning is the range of activities trainees may undertake in order to gain the experience and evidence to demonstrate their achievement of module competencies and assessments. The list is not definitive or mandatory, but training officers should ensure, as best training practice, that trainees gain as many of these clinical experiences as possible. They should be included in training plans, and once undertaken they should support the completion of module assessments and competencies within the e-portfolio.
Clinical experiential learning
- Observe and describe a range of common nuclear medicine scans, undertake analysis of the results and discuss with your training officer how the clinical scans contribute to the diagnosis and management of patients
- Observe and participate in the performance of a range of non-imaging in-vivo and in-vitro tests, including measurements of volume, uptake and clearance, and discuss the evidence base underpinning these procedures with your training officer
- Observe the routine production of radiopharmaceuticals and participate in routine quality assurance procedures within the radiopharmacy and describe the role of the radiopharmacy in patient care
- Participate in the performance assessment of a range of common X-ray imaging equipment and discuss the evidence base underpinning these measurements with your training officer
- Audit and calculate patient doses from a range of procedures and discuss the evidence base underpinning these calculations with your training officer
