HLTDEN008 Prepare to expose a prescribed dental radiographic image
Please read through the following case study. Reflect on your learning and your own research within this unit.
Prepare a response that responds to each of the issues presented below. Your responses must reflect your knowledge, skills, and application for this unit.
Mrs Fraser is bringing her 10-year-old son Matthew in for an appointment. Matthew has had a fall in the school playground, and his front teeth are ‘a bit loose’. Matthew has been a regular patient for seven years, has had X-rays previously in relation to his eruption pattern, and currently wears an orthodontic appliance. Previous treatment for Matthew has been a bit awkward due to his large tongue.
Upon examination, it is determined that Matthew requires X-rays to consider potential damage caused by the fall. Your dental surgery uses digital radiography processes.
Explain your process for ensuring that all relevant information is considered in preparation of Matthew’s X-rays. Do you have sufficient information from the operator’s request and, if not, how do you obtain additional information? Are Matthew’s previous X-rays considered and, if so, why is it important to clarify their technical quality? Your response should also include how Matthew is able to comply with instructions and how you may need to review modifications to standard procedure. (Min 1000 words)
