Radiograph Classification

Subset 5

Complete one classification form for each of the radiographs in this subset and then compare your classifications to the validated classifications of expert readers on the answer keys provided. It is expected that there will be some differences in how the radiographs are classified. However, if your classification departs significantly from that of the experts, it is suggested that you review the appropriate sections in Subsets 1 – 4. Subset 5 consists of radiographs and answer keys.

PLEASE NOTE: Throughout this self-study syllabus you may notice minor differences between classification forms because of occasional modifications. However, the most significant components of the forms, and most importantly, the principles of classification, remain the same.
