TEMPORARY VISITATION POLICY CHANGE:

Neuroradiology / MRI

Body Imaging: Neuroradiology / MRI

There is no formal Neuroradiology rotation at our institution. Rotations are performed by modality encompassing many organ systems. Traditionally, the MRI rotation is used as the time to focus on this section. All procedures are performed during the interventional radiology rotation.

Rotation 1

Knowledge Based Objectives: At the end of the rotation, the resident should be able to:

  1. Given normal neuro images, demonstrate a proficient knowledge of the anatomy of the head and neck, spine, and central nervous system.
  2. Discuss the basic principles of CT and MRI physics.
  3. Describe, in considerable detail, CT and MR imaging protocols.
  4. Given an appropriate abnormal image, recognize basic neuropathology and give a differential diagnosis.

Technical Skills: At the end of the rotation, the resident should be able to:

  1. Screen, prescribe, and supervise routine neuroimaging procedures.
  2. Supervise and screen imaging patient sedations.

Decision-Making and Value Judgment Skills: At the end of the rotation, the resident should be able to:

  1. Interact with primary care physicians and neurologists in consultation when more common pathologies are at question.

Rotation 2 and 3

Knowledge Based Objectives: At the end of the rotation, the resident should be able to:

  1. Demonstrate increased ability to recognize pathology and discuss a differential diagnosis

Technical Skills: At the end of the rotation, the resident should be able to:

  1. Dictate neuroimaging studies after review with the attending neuroradiologist.
  2. Screen, prescribe, and supervise, with an increasing level of responsibility, most neuroimaging procedures.

Decision-Making and Value Judgment Skills: At the end of the rotation, the resident should be able to:

  1. Consult, with increasing confidence, with primary care physicians and neurologists in regard to most neuroimaging procedures.
