Students simulate radiographic procedures both from the patient’s perspective and also from the operator’s perspective on one of four different X-ray machines.
Once they have established competencies in radiographic positioning, Macquarie chiropractic students move into the Outpatient Clinics where, under supervision, they assist in the taking of patient radiographs.
The Radiographic Learning laboratory also provides an X-ray reading library with viewing stations so that students may improve their diagnostic skills and report writing. The laboratory contains more than 1,200 pathological cases that allow students to develop further pattern recognition and problem solving.
All Outpatient’s Clinics are equipped with modern high-frequency X-ray facilities. The X-ray Unit at the Epping Clinic also contains teaching facilities for 15 students at a time to receive practical training in spinal and peripheral radiography as well as darkroom experience.
