RADI 720 DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY 4 Credit Hours

ELECTIVE

Daily observations of film interpretation, fluoroscopic examinations and interventional radiographic procedures. We will discuss plain film analysis of the abdomen and chest, terminology used with different modalities, radiation protection and the patient's experience of radiological tests. You will further learn by teaching your peers through unknown cases and presentations. With the cooperation of the instructor, emphasis can be directed to specialized areas such as pediatric radiology, cardiovascular radiology, ultrasounds, neuroradiology, musculoskeletal radiology, and GU radiology. Students will be assigned at the University Hospital. You will receive your clinical schedule at the beginning of the rotation.

RADI 724 NUCLEAR MEDICINE 4 Credit Hours

ELECTIVE

This elective is directed towards acquainting the student with the field of Nuclear Medicine. The application of radionuclides to the diagnosis, treatment and/or investigation of human disease is surveyed with emphasis on clinical applications. The students receive didactic instruction in the principles and practice of pertinent nuclear physics and instrumentation. They will participate in case evaluation, procedure selection, radio-pharmaceutical dose calculation and administration, conduct the procedure, subsequent evaluation and analysis of data with patients. Integration of the consultative report into the total patient care is stressed. Pertinent radiation biologic and radiation protection considerations are related to the conduct of the routine practice of nuclear medicine. Opportunity is available for the pursuit of individual interests within the overall framework of the elective. A specific investigational activity exploring an area of interest in greater depth is also an integral part of the elective, providing a more detailed experience relating to the field of nuclear medicine.
