  • Relevant health and safety policies for the imaging department for the safe use of ionising and non-ionising imaging equipment.
  • Key anatomical landmarks appropriate to the investigation.
  • Normal and abnormal images.
  • How different imaging tests contribute to the holistic approach in the diagnosis and management of relevant common conditions.
  • Choice of test equipment and the safety, calibration and quality assurance checks required for diagnostic imaging equipment services.
  • The selection of a particular imaging modality in preference to another.
  • Key research and development areas that are likely to translate to improvements in imaging technique.
  • The range of equipment within the scope of learning, its use, application and limitations.
  • The strengths and weaknesses of each imaging modality within relevant care pathways.
