Radiotracer volume calculations

 

Details

The project involved working with a medical physicist SME to obtain the additional content needed and to help me to understand the different elements of the calculation and its nuances - where people typically go wrong.

I broke the whole thing down into sections, and integrated practice opportunities throughout.  The Storyline objects required some more advanced work, for example to enable multiple answers to be validated on a single question slide.

Description

This learning object was made in Articulate Rise, and includes embedded Storyline blocks.

The aim of the learning was to teach radiographers how to calculate the volume of radiotracer to administer to a patient.  The calculation involves multiple steps, and has to take into account the decay of the radioactivity in the tracer - i.e. the longer it has been since the tracer was produced, the more tracer has to be administered to make the correct dosage.
