This subject will expand the student's education in Nuclear Medicine procedures. It examines imaging methods appropriate to body systems not already covered in Nuclear Medicine Technique 1, 2 and 3. The subject aims to provide a broad based understanding of the principles and practice of Nuclear Medicine Techniques, providing a sound platform of knowledge for students to take into both their clinical placement and approaching PDY placement. The subject also includes paediatric techniques, radionuclide therapy, Non-Imaging Techniques, and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) applications. By the completion of this subject, all other areas studied should allow students consolidate their knowledge in the clinical setting as preparation for interim accreditation with the Australian and New Zealand Society of Nuclear Medicine upon full-time employment in the field

Module 1: Radionuclide Therapy: Radionuclides and radiopharmaceuticals of choice Physiology, pathophysiology, and anatomy; Positioning techniques for imaging (where appropriate); Special radiation protection considerations and legal requirements. Module 2: Paediatrics Special procedures that generally apply only to children Special considerations when applying protocols to children Module 3: Non-Imaging Techniques other than GFR: Radioimmunoassay GIT Absorption and Loss Breath Tests Haematology Calculation and interpretation of results Module 4: Positron Emission Tomography Clinical and research applications of PET in cardiology, neurology and oncology Physiological cross sectional anatomy on PET Image interpretation Clinical Component: This subject will provide the student with a 5 week program of directly supervised clinical experience in appropriate Nuclear Medicine Centres. Each clinical site will endeavour to provide student access to those areas that the student required to complete their clinical competencies requirements. This will be negotiated by the student, the Clinical Supervisor and the School Clinical Administrator.
