This module demonstrates how to set up for and obtain X-rays of the abdomen and pelvis. The online simulator features three different patient scenarios requiring radiographic imaging of the abdomen and pelvis. Including both practice and test modes, it offers students and practitioners the knowledge, cognitive skills and a safe practice environment to perform these procedures accurately in preparation for working in a clinical setting. This module is ideal if you are studying for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® (ARRT) registry exams.

You’ll learn

  • to practice, perfect and test your skills in obtaining X-rays of the abdomen, pelvis and sacroiliac joints
  • to better visualize and understand the anatomy of the abdomen and pelvis, with our 3D anatomical model
  • to identify the indications and contraindications for performing radiographic procedures of the abdomen and pelvis
  • how to position patients for abdominal and pelvic radiography using anatomical landmarks
  • how to manage the requirements of pediatric and trauma patients
  • how to analyze radiographs for quality and correct positioning criteria
  • much more (see “content details” for more specific information)

Disclaimer

The SIMTICS modules are all easy to use and web-based. This means they are available at any time as long as the learner has an internet connection. No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:

  • an online simulation (available in Learn and Test modes)
  • descriptive text, which explains exactly how to perform that particular procedure including key terms and hyperlinks to references
  • 2D images and a 3D model of applied anatomy for that particular topic
  • a step by step video demonstration by an expert
  • a quiz
  • a personal logbook that keeps track of all the modules the learner has studied and how long
