The anatomy of the bones of the skull and face is complex, and it is important to understand these structures in order to obtain optimal radiographic projections. This SIMTICS module teaches you how to prepare for, set up, and obtain radiographs of the skull, cranial and facial bones, and paranasal sinuses. Including both practice and test modes, the online simulator features three different patient scenarios.  This module 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. 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 skull, cranial and facial bones, and paranasal sinuses
  • to better visualize and understand the anatomy of the head – especially the skull, cranial and facial bones, and paranasal sinuses - with our 3D anatomical model
  • to identify the indications and contraindications for obtaining radiographic projections of the skull, cranial and facial bones, and paranasal sinuses
  • how to manage the requirements of trauma and pediatric patients
  • how to position a patient to obtain optimal images of the skull, cranial and facial bones, and paranasal sinuses
  • 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
