Object lesson: Radiology has a decisive and expanded role in the practice of modern clinical medicine. It includes a wide range of imaging techniques (X-ray, Ultrasound, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging). The course, includes the basic principles and clinical applications of nuclear medicine in systems or organs. In this way it provides morphological and functional information that are important in the diagnosis of several diseases.

The subject of the course is the essential and multilevel training of students for the effective application of radiology in clinical practice.

Course contents of 7th semester:

  • Basic principles of imaging techniques: X-ray digital imaging, ultrasonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. γ-Camera, radiopharmaceuticals
  • Respiratory system: normal chest, inflammations and lung diseases of the interstitial system, lung neoplasms, mediastinal and pleura disorders
  • Cardiovascular disorders: heart failure and pulmonary embolism
  • Pediatric radiology: the respiratory system and the gastrointestinal tract
  • Ventricle-Gastrointestinal: Acute abdomen, hepato-biliary diseases, pancreatic diseases, diseases of spleen, esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine

Form and outcomes of instruction: The course is taught to the amphitheater (Monday, Tuesday Wednesday, Thursday: 8-9am) in combination with laboratory-tutorial exercise four weeks (daily: 9am-14mm) in small groups of students. Students are fully integrated into the operation of the laboratory by monitoring the following sections: classic radiology (radiography / fluoroscopy / mammography), ultrasound, CT and MRI. They derive theoretical knowledge by watching daily lectures in the laboratory (12.00-13:00) and the clinical and laboratory meetings with discussions of interesting cases. Additionally, they acquire practical knowledge by watching imaging tests and examinations.

Hours of training per student: 52 and 125 to 7th and 8th half laboratory exercise in small groups of students (rotation).
