Abstract

The research design used in this study was quasi-experimental design specifically the non-equivalent control group approach, or more commonly known as a pre-test post-test design. Using purposive sampling technique, the total population involved 54 senior students whose parents signed a consent form to allow the students to participate in the study. The Assessment of Knowledge Regarding Diagnostic Radiography and Health Education on Diagnostic Radiography served as the instrument. Data was analyzed through mean, standard deviation, t-test of independent means and t-test of dependent means. The study concluded that, 1) Before health education was administered, the subjects in the treatment group and control group had an equal level of knowledge regarding diagnostic radiography, which was verbally interpreted as very good. After the administration of health education, the treatment group had higher level of knowledge which was verbally interpreted as excellent. The subjects in the control group who were not exposed to intervention maintained the same level of knowledge regarding diagnostic radiography; 2) There was a significant difference in the level of knowledge of the treatment group before and after intervention. This implies that the health education administered to the treatment group was very effective; 3) There was no significant difference in the level of knowledge of the control group before and after health education because the subjects did not receive any intervention; 4) There was a significant difference in the level of knowledge regarding diagnostic radiography between the treatment group and control group after health education. There was a higher rate of knowledge observed in the treatment grouped who were exposed to intervention than the control group who were not exposed to intervention.
