Diagnostic Imaging: the development

Diagnostic Imaging traces its beginning from 1895 and it has constantly but slowly developed until the mid 70ies, when technology improvement. i.e. computers ecc, lead to an impressive development: Computed Tomography (CT), Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Ultrasonography (US), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

Diagnostic Imaging

General objectives

The course provides

  • theoretical and practical techniques of diagnostic imaging for each organ and system.
  • the necessary theoretical and practical information to develop a diagnostic procedure for each pathology of medical or surgical interest.

Diagnostic Imaging

Specific objectives

  • To compile requests for diagnostic imaging research, providing the appropriate clinic information and asking clear diagnostic problems
  • To position the films on the diaphanoscope and to recognize the main anatomic structures and the described medical reports
  • Comprehension and interpretation of the diagnostic imaging report in relation to a specific diagnostic problem
  • To explain risks and benefits of diagnostic imaging researches to patients (for example the risks of contrast mediums) and to obtain informed consent.

Diagnostic Imaging: prerequisites

Knowledge of the core notions of:

  • Physics, above all Radiation Physics
  • Biochemistry
  • Physiopathology of the main organs and systems
  • Staging criteria of the main neoplasia
