To provide students with broad experience in basic clinical diagnostic and interventional radiology. Students acquire knowledge of the appropriate indication of the most common imaging studies and will get a basic understanding on the interpretation of radiology studies, including chest, abdominal and musculoskeletal plain films, ultrasounds, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mammography and fluoroscopy. Students will also learn the indication and observe the techniques for multiple vascular and nonvascular interventional radiology procedures.
Students rotate through both the outpatient clinic and hospital radiology departments and attend general radiology reading sessions with staff members. Students are expected to attend interdepartmental conferences including tumor boards.
At the end of the rotation students are required to present an interesting case to the rotation preceptor.
Evaluations will be distributed by the MSE department to the preceptor at the end of the rotation.
