Diagnostic Radiology

  1. 1. Diagnostic Radiology In recent years, there has been significant advancement in radiological sciences, especially due to the introduction and continued development of new imaging modalities and interventional radiology, the use of which has considerably improved patient care. Radiology department of AKUH has kept pace with this rapid development and offers the full complement of diagnostic and interventional services. The radiologist should, in addition to interpretation of films, be able to perform all common diagnostic procedures. Progress in Diagnostic Radiology has been slow in Pakistan. The residency programme in Diagnostic Radiology at AKUH has been structured keeping in view the specific requirements for Pakistan, in addition to meeting the international training standards for training a modern Diagnostic Radiologist. Objectives The objectives of the Residency Programme in Diagnostic Radiology are to provide quality education and training, which prepare the student for life-time learning. Residents should be able to function effectively with available resources in Pakistani context. At the completion of residency training, the residents are expected to pass FCPS Examination of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Pakistan. The programme is intended to produce academic professionals capable of providing leadership in the field, promoting change through scientific inquiry and the highest professional standards. Duration of Training The programme is of four years duration. Eligibility • MBBS or equivalent degree approved by the PM&DC; • One year internship with six months in Medicine and allied and six months in Surgery and allied disciplines; • FCPS Part I in Diagnostic Radiology; • At least two years clinical experience is preferred. Further information can be obtained from the Chairman of the Department or the Director of Residency Training. Scope and Content a. Clinical Training: The emphasis of the programme is on interactive learning. Residents will rotate through all sub- specialty areas of Radiology. They will gradually be given increasing responsibilities and independence in performing and reporting examinations. All procedures and reporting will be supervised by the faculty. In addition, residents will acquire formal education in basic radiological physics, film quality and processing, and radiation protection from a hospital physicist. Residents will also receive instructions in radiographic positioning and techniques. b. Didactic Content: Although most of the teaching will be practical, on the film reporting and performing procedures, a number of didactic lectures on selected topics by the faculty are also provided. Active resident participation is required in seminars, presentations on selected topics, journal clubs, and in

For teaching purposes, a broad-based computer aided Radiology Learning File is available in the Department. In addition, an active ACR coding based indigenous Radiology Teaching File (of films) is available, which is continuously updated. A comprehensive process of evaluation and assessment is in place. c. Research and Academic opportunities: In addition to teaching and training in diagnostic radiology, the department offers unique opportunities in the field of research. Last year the residents, in addition to their dissertations published, presented a total of 15 papers and posters including a prize winning presentation at the 8th International Radiology Conference at Lahore. On-Call duties Residents are required to be on-call for emergency radiological procedures. The on-call duties begin soon after induction. The faculty supervises on-call residents. Administrative Set-up The Head of the Department is Programme Chairman and a senior member of the faculty is the Programme Director, who is responsible for conducting the programme. Presently, the Programme Director is Dr Zafar Sajjad, and the Programme Coordinator is Dr Imrana Masroor.
