Medical Imaging Unit
HPU440 Medical Imaging Unit describes the operational, functional and design requirements for the provision of a range of medical imaging modalities for diagnostic and therapeutic radiological examinations.
An updated revision of HPU440 Medical Imaging Unit (Revision 7, 28 November 2018) has been uploaded. Key changes to the document include:
- general revision of content to align with current best practice models of service delivery, as well as current and emerging technologies;
- restructure of the schedule of accommodation to provide recommended spatial allocations by capacity requirement (i.e. number of modalities for each modality type) rather than role delineation;
- inclusion of recommended area requirements for satellite emergency and ambulatory care medical imaging units; and
- inclusion of a diagram for the MRI four zone system, demonstrating the provision of a ‘buffer’ around the MRI which is free of potentially hazardous metal objects and to support access restriction policies.
