The Imaging Sciences Department moved into their new location during the summer of 2010. The 26 million dollar modern healthcare education and research facility is located at 316 West 2nd Street. The building is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to provide students with quality instruction for classes and laboratories and to prepare them for clinical practice experiences. Students are able to simulate imaging procedures in a controlled environment prior to performing them on live patients. Laboratories have videotaping capabilities, allowing students and faculty to evaluate their performance. This also allows students to develop their skills and become more confident prior to their clinical assignments. The building also houses a testing and multimedia center, with all required IT infrastructure, allowing online testing and the performance of computerized instructional modules to improve student learning. These experiences provide the students with knowledge and confidence in preparation for their computerized national certification exams.
The lab is equipped with three computed radiographic machines, imaging plates, and computer imaging stations. Computerized imaging monitors allow the faculty / students to view images stored on the mini picture archiving and communication system from the computerized radiography rooms. Patient care equipment includes beds / exam tables, physical assessment equipment to teach skills, and mannequins for students to perform simulations.
The CT/MR labs are equipped with eight computer workstations containing discipline software programs. These computer workstations allow the students to reconstruct images and perform other imaging parameters needed in CT and MR, thus providing the students with the needed skills and preparation prior to their clinical assignment.
The laboratory has four ultrasound machines, various anatomic phantoms, computerized monitors for the image reconstruction area, and a MedSim simulation mannequin. The simulator allows the student to perform “virtual” sonographic examinations by scanning a human-like mannequin with access to computer archived volumes of normal and pathologic patient ultrasound data. The modern equipment promotes academic excellence and student success by providing them the opportunity to develop clinical skills, demonstrate greater confidence, and perform at higher levels during their clinical rotations.
