An X-ray of the chest is a very common examination, either to look for abnormalities or for checking the position of invasive lines and tubes. This module teaches you how to prepare for, set up and acquire radiographic projections of the chest, bony thorax and soft tissue of the neck and upper airways. Including both practice and test modes, the online simulator offers three different patient scenarios.  This module offers students and practitioners the knowledge, cognitive skills and a safe practice environment to perform these procedures accurately and with confidence in preparation for working with patients. If you are studying for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® (ARRT) registry exams, this module is ideal.

You’ll learn

  • to practice, perfect and test your skills in obtaining X-rays of the chest, bony thorax and soft tissue of the neck and upper airways
  • to better visualize and understand the anatomy of chest, bony thorax and soft tissue of the neck and upper airways, and surrounding structures, with our 3D anatomical model
  • to identify common pathologies of chest, bony thorax and soft tissue of the neck and upper airways and their signs and symptoms
  • how to manage the requirements of trauma and pediatric patients requiring radiographs of the chest, bony thorax and soft tissue of the neck and upper airways
  • how to position a patient to obtain optimal images of the chest, bony thorax and soft tissue of the neck and upper airways
  • 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
  • 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
