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 8th semester:

  • Central nervous system diseases: neurocutaneous diseases, congenital anomalies, traumatic brain injuries, vascular diseases, brain tumors of children-adults, acquired intracranial infections, demyelinating diseases
  • Diseases of the spine and spinal cord: congenital abnormalities, degenerative diseases, infections, injuries, demyelinating diseases, tumors and tumor-like conditions
  • Interventional radiology: aneurysms and vascular malformations of the brain-spinal cord
  • Musculoskeletal system: degenerative osteoarthropathy, seronegative spondyloarthropathies, tumors - tumor-like lesions of bone and soft tissue
  • Urogenital system: anatomy-imaging methods, tumor-kidney tumor-like lesions, inflammation-gritty kidney, adrenal diseases, diseases of the prostate gland and scrotum, diseases of the female genital tract and breast

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 7 ° and 8 ° half laboratory exercise in small groups of students (rotation).

Semester: 8th
