In recent decades there has been a shift from conventional imaging to modern digital imaging equipment. Whilst this has had an overwhelmingly positive impact on service provision, there have also inevitably been unexpected drawbacks.
Reviewing the existing relevant literature, compile a report discussing Direct Digital Imaging, incorporating the following subject headings:
Implications for Patients (including Dose)
Implications for staff
You should use the information you find in your literature searches to inform your points and provide a basis for:
Arguments for/against etc.
This report should demonstrate interpretation of the information you have found, rather than simply listing it, i.e., what does this information actually mean in terms of the coursework brief?
You should provide a suitable background introduction to the subject and a brief summary of your main findings at the end of the report.
