    Diagnostic Radiology Diagnostic Radiology Document Transcript

    • Diagnostic RadiologyIn recent years, there has been significant advancement in radiological sciences, especially due tothe introduction and continued development of new imaging modalities and interventionalradiology, the use of which has considerably improved patient care. Radiology department ofAKUH has kept pace with this rapid development and offers the full complement of diagnosticand interventional services. The radiologist should, in addition to interpretation of films, be ableto perform all common diagnostic procedures. Progress in Diagnostic Radiology has been slow inPakistan. The residency programme in Diagnostic Radiology at AKUH has been structuredkeeping in view the specific requirements for Pakistan, in addition to meeting the internationaltraining standards for training a modern Diagnostic Radiologist.ObjectivesThe objectives of the Residency Programme in Diagnostic Radiology are to provide qualityeducation and training, which prepare the student for life-time learning. Residents should be ableto function effectively with available resources in Pakistani context. At the completion ofresidency training, the residents are expected to pass FCPS Examination of the College ofPhysicians and Surgeons, Pakistan. The programme is intended to produce academicprofessionals capable of providing leadership in the field, promoting change through scientificinquiry and the highest professional standards.Duration of TrainingThe 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 Directorof Residency Training.Scope and Contenta. 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 andindependence in performing and reporting examinations.All procedures and reporting will be supervised by the faculty. In addition, residents will acquireformal education in basic radiological physics, film quality and processing, and radiationprotection from a hospital physicist. Residents will also receive instructions in radiographicpositioning 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 residentparticipation is required in seminars, presentations on selected topics, journal clubs, and in
    • clinico-radiological conferences and film viewing sessions. Residents are also encouraged towrite research articles and case reports. For teaching purposes, a broad-based computer aidedRadiology Learning File is available in the Department. In addition, an active ACR coding basedindigenous 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 uniqueopportunities in the field of research. Last year the residents, in addition to their dissertationspublished, presented a total of 15 papers and posters including a prize winning presentation at the8th International Radiology Conference at Lahore.On-Call dutiesResidents are required to be on-call for emergency radiological procedures. The on-call dutiesbegin soon after induction.
