Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Become familiar with what it is that radiologists and radiological subspecialists do, and how to interact with them as a clinical colleague.
  • Review relevant anatomy, pathophysiology, technology and performance of examinations as it relates to the daily practice of radiology.
  • For a clinical scenario, recognize the radiological examinations available, know relative appropriateness criteria (cost, radiation, sedation, time, complication(s), consent, limitations, reimbursement—where applicable)
  • Understand very basic plain film and CT interpretation and become familiar with sonography and MR, and recognize limitations in knowledge and understanding of radiological interpretation.
  • Become familiar with and begin to manage the digital aspects of modern radiology, radiology terminology, and radiology interpretation and use in digital presentation/consultation of case material.
  • Recognize aspects of patient autonomy in decision‐making, communication, cultural differences
  • Recognize and reduce areas of potential error.
  • Compare and contrast the benefits and limitations of different radiologic modalities including: Plain film, CT, Ultrasound, MR
  • List risks associated with radiation exposure
  • Distinguish between the different types of contrast used in imaging exams and the potential diagnostic benefits of each
  • Discuss the potential complications of intravenous contrast administration for CT and MR exams and identify predisposing risk factors
  • Describe different methods for reducing the risk of contrast nephropathy
  • Summarize risks and contraindications unique to MR examinations
  • Describe the specific circumstances in which a multiphase CT (“with and without contrast”) may be useful and list reasons why this type of scan is not performed routinely
  • List two imaging modalities with no proven risk to the fetus in a pregnant patient
Course Content Radiographic imaging and evaluations, ultrasonographic examinations, Doppler ultrasonography, obstetric ultrasonography, computed tomography, mammography, DSA angiography, pediatric radiology, MR imaging.
