Unresolved issues related to this course should be first addressed between the student and the course instructor. If there is no resolution, students must follow this sequence:
Department Chair – Dr. Donna Wright (940-397-4571)

Conduct / Honesty / Honor System:
RADS 2233 adheres to the MSU code of Conduct. In particular, academic dishonesty, however small, creates a breach in academic integrity. A student's participation in this course comes with the expectation that his/her work will be completed in full observance of the MSU code of Student Conduct. A student should consult the Student Handbook for answers to any questions about the code.
Students are encouraged to take full advantage of many resources available including Internet sites, handouts, other textbooks and journals, faculty, and peers. This interactive collegial learning environment is conducive to life-long learning.
Specific components of RADS 2233 are designed to represent the efforts of each student individually and are NOT to be shared. These components include the written assignments submitted for a grade. When students submit their efforts for grading, they are attesting they abided by this rule. Quizzes and exams are not to be copied in any form or shared in any form.
Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests, or examinations; (2) dependence upon the aid of sources beyond those authorized by the instructor in writing papers, preparing reports, solving problems, or completing other assignments; or (3) the acquisition of tests or other academic materials belonging to the university faculty or staff without permission.
Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, the use of, by paraphrase or direct quotation without correct recognition, the published or unpublished works of another person. The use of materials generated by agencies engaged in "selling" term papers is also plagiarism.
By enrolling in this course, the student expressly grants MSU a “limited right” in all intellectual property created by the student for the purpose of this course. The “limited right” shall include but shall not be limited to the right to reproduce the student’s work product in order to verify originality and authenticity, and for educational purposes. Specifically, faculty may submit student papers and assignments to an external agency to detect plagiarism.
Academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, etc.) will not be tolerated in this class. If a student is found to have committed academic dishonesty, a grade of zero (0) will be given for the quiz, assignment, etc. Cases may also be referred to the Dean of Students for possible dismissal from the university.
Grading / Evaluation:
Comprehensive Closed Book Final Exam 35%
A = 89.5 - 100
B = 79.5 – 89.4
C = 74.5 – 79.4
D = 60.5 – 74.4
F = Below 60.4
CLASS ACTIVITIES AND ASSIGNMENTS
Students must participate in class activities, projects, and discussions. Evidence of class participation includes: coming to class, being on time to class, participating in class discussions and submitting the assignments in a timely manner. Each absence (see attendance) will be a 10 point deduction in the Participation area.
Quizzes - 35%
Module 1: Fluoroscopy and Contrast
Module 2: Alimentary Tract (Upper GI, Lower GI, Accessory Organs)
Module 3: Urinary tract
Module 4: Special Radiographic Studies and Surgical Radiography
Module 5: Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology
Module 6: Mobile Radiography, Trauma, Pediatrics, and Geriatrics (no separate quiz but content will be included on the Final Exam)
You will be required to use Scantron answer sheets for all quizzes & exams.
Assignment – 20%
The purpose of this activity is to reinforce the role of advanced medical imaging procedures. Students should demonstrate that they have an understanding of the procedures they are given, but perhaps more importantly, this presentation provides an opportunity for students to see how the procedures done every day in medical imaging departments is a vital component for successful diagnosis and treatment of patients. The intended audience for the student-created presentation is the patient.
Students will prepare a paper/oral presentation, PowerPoint presentation or poster presentation on a given procedure.
Students will be divided into groups of 5 students. The instructor will present the group a piece of equipment used in advanced procedures in radiology. The students will then research sources to find out what type of equipment the group has been given. The students will then explore which procedure the equipment is used for and will then answer the following questions in terms a patient would understand.
Each student in the group will work on a different set of questions. A short (10-15 minute presentation) will be given by the group to the class with each of the students presenting their set of questions relating to the equipment and procedure.
The group must have at least one image of the device on a radiograph, CT, or fluoroscopy. The presentation can be in PowerPoint. References must accompany the presentation and be in APA 6th ed format. Do not copy and paste from a website. Paraphrase the information so that a patient would understand.
The group will be graded on the following areas:
The individual student will be graded on the following areas
Comprehensive Closed Book Final Exam - 35%
The final examination is a "closed book", comprehensive examination of a 100 question multiple-choice format. All final examinations will be administered during the designated date(s) and time(s) listed in the calendar and/or syllabus. There will be NO alteration of any type to this schedule.

Missed quizzes may only be made up if prior arrangements are made.
Attendance is mandatory. Excessive absences will result in a referral to the Dean of the College of Health Sciences, and may result in your being dropped from the Program. Excessive absences are defined as: More than 3 absences from lecture (except medical reasons). Missed quizzes may only be made up if prior arrangements are made. If a student is more than 20 mins late to class it will count as a tardy. 3 tardies will count as an absence.
