This rotation involves primarily the traditional modalities (e.g. such as fluoroscopy, intravenous urography, hysterosalpingraphy, etc.) that were available to evaluate the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts before cross sectional imaging techniques were widely used. There techniques are still important parts of radiologic practice. The resident is expected to correlate these traditional examinations performed on this rotation with results from nuclear medicine, ultrasound, CT, MR, and angiography as well as with clinical history and other medical tests when caring for patients. It is expected that the radiology resident will review the clinical history, surgical procedures performed, and other medical tests and examinations prior to beginning an examination in the GI/GU rotation.
Below there are five sections to the GI/GU Goals, Objectives and Curriculum:
I. GOALS AND OBJECTIVES FOR THE COMBINED GI/GU ROTATION
II. INTRODUCTION TO THE GASTROINTESTINAL RADIOLOGY SECTION OF THE ROTATION
III. INTRODUCTION TO THE GENITOURINARY RADIOLOGY SECTION OF THE ROTATION
IV. THE GASTROINTESTINAL RADIOLOGY SECTION CURRICULUM, which was based largely on curriculum developed by the Society of Gastrointestinal Radiology
V. THE GENITOURINARY RADIOLOGY SECTION CURRICULUM, which was based largely on the curriculum developed by the Society of Uroradiology
Separate conferences/lectures will be provided by the faculty to cover the Gastrointestinal and Genitourinary sections of the curriculum.
