SCIENCE WEEK : VISIT FROM MRS. BURGESS : Tuesday 13th March 2018

On Tuesday, Mrs. Burgess (Ethan’s mum) came into school to talk to the Geckos about her job as a Radiographer.

She showed us a range of X-rays of parts of the human anatomy; including the lungs, chest, ribs, knee and arm joints and pelvis (even an X-ray of a teddy).
She explained to us how an ultrasound works and showed us a baby’s ultrasound, as well as explaining a bit about MIR scan (showing us a brain X-ray scan).

Did you know you have to study for 3 years to be a Radiographer?  Once you have graduated, you normally specialise in a particular area.

Thanks to Mrs. Burgess for such an interesting talk and also for the skeleton pencils she gave us.
