Course objectives
Nuclear medicine: The concept of this course is introduction into the study of nuclear medicine. Students should know basic principles of examination and should be able to select the diagnostic and therapeutic methods of nuclear medicine.Radiodiagnostic: The concept of this course is introduction into the study of radiology and imaging methods, including CT, MR, X-ray, angiography and ultrasound. Students should know basic principle of examination and methods of CT, MR, UZ and X-ray, including technique, anatomy, indications, contraindications and risk factors.
Learning outcomes
Student will:
- have knowledge of the principles of imaging methods, differentiation of individual modalities, appropriate indications and contraindications of methods.
- be able to indicate correct imaging methods in case of suspicion of specific disease conditions
- know the limitations of imaging methods in specific disease states,
- be able to evaluate basic anatomical structures on imaging examinations.
  • Nuclear Medicine: Radionuclides, interaction between ionizing radiation and matter, radiation detection, imaging techniques, SPECT, PET, fundamentals of radiopharmacology, biological effects of ionizing radiation, radiation safety. Methods of nuclear medicine used in urology, skeletal and bone marrow scintigraphy, nuclear cardiology. Scintigraphy of CNS, lungs, thyroid gland, gastrointestinal tract, liver and spleen. Examination in hematology, diagnostics of inflammations and tumors. With each examination procedure, the radiopharmaceuticals used, the methods, evaluation, interpretation of the findings, and indications are explained. Principles of radioimmunologic diagnostic procedures. Relations between the methods of nuclear medicine and other imaging methods, role of radionuclide methods in diagnostic algorithms. Fundamentals of therapy of diseases using radiopharmaceuticals.Radiodiagnostic: CT, MR, X-ray, ultrasound, angiography, interventional radiology, indications, contraindication, risk factors, limits, technical aspect, anatomy, interpretations of the findings. Methods of diagnostic imaging used in different subspecializations and areas like pediatric radiology, neuroradiology, interventional radiology, abdominal imaging, imaging in oncology, uroradiology, woman imaging and cardiac imaging are discussed. With each examination procedure and method the contrast agents, indications, contraindications and risk factors as well as limits are explained. Technical principles, standards, protections and “how to do it” are also learned.
