This module teaches you how to prepare for, set up and obtain radiographs of the lower extremity and hip. Including both practice and test modes, the online procedure simulator features three different patient scenarios. It offers students and practitioners the knowledge, cognitive skills and safe practice environment to perform these procedures accurately, to build confidence 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 lower extremity and hip, including the leg, knee, ankle, foot and toes
  • to better visualize and understand the anatomy of the lower extremity and hip, with our 3D anatomical model
  • to identify the indications and contraindications for performing radiographic procedures of the lower extremity and hip
  • how to manage the requirements of pediatric and trauma patients
  • how to position a patient to obtain optimal images of the lower extremity and hip
  • 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
