Diagnostic Methods

Thread Description

Organization

The Diagnostic Methods starts in the Introduction to the Profession Master Course where we introduce students to Radiology (as a profession) through a panel and other activities (curtailed during COVID). This is followed by a Cancer Imaging lecture and workshop in Genes and Development which covers the role of Radiology in cancer imaging (focused mainly on mammography and some nuclear medicine imaging).

In Attacks and Defenses, we give content introducing students to the basics of the common imaging modalities (CT, MRI, US and Conventional Radiography); this is followed by focussed topics on Chest, Cardiac and Genitourinary Imaging in Homeostatis. Over the last few mastercourses, the Diagnostic Thread covers topics in abdominal and endocrine imaging, as well as neuroradiology and imaging consideration in older patients.
