Course unit content

Il tirocinio di Diagnostica per Immagini e Radiologia per studenti di Medicina e Chirurgia ha l'obiettivo di fornire una formazione pratica completa nelle tecniche di imaging. Gli studenti acquisiscono competenze nell'uso delle apparecchiature radiologiche come radiografia convenzionale, tomografia computerizzata, risonanza magnetica, ecografia e medicina nucleare. Durante il tirocinio, apprendono a gestire i pazienti, interpretare le immagini radiologiche e applicare le normative di sicurezza radiologica. Il programma include attività pratiche supervisionate, discussione di casi clinici, seminari tematici e valutazioni basate su performance pratica, relazione finale e colloquio con i tutor clinici.
