Radiodiagnosis is branch of science which is a procedure of diagnosis making use of x-rays; or, more generally, what is known as diagnostic imaging, which includes radiology, magnetic resonance and index with a diagnostic term.
The apparatus of Radiodiagnosis is made up of intensifying screens necessary for radiography and has been structured such that the screens together with its supports can be removed for the process of radioscopy.
The Radiodiagnosis apparatus as per the invention contain an exposure device, which includes a frame which is fixed to the radiodiagnosis apparatus in the portion which is exposed thereof it has also a removable drawer which supports the intensifying screens which are sliding alongside the frame.
That taken as a whole, the aim of radiodiagnosis diploma is for the participants to achieve the following course objectives:
- Run a radio-diagnostic unit and at the same time be able to provide the most basic as well as most common diagnostic procedures.
- Communicate well and be able to keep pace with the clinicians and radiologists on their workplaces as well as with the hospitals.
- Have awareness on the current and most advanced modes of diagnostic imaging and its application for initial diagnosis and cure.
- Be prepared to gain and relate the new innovative developments in radiology at whatever time available.
- Compose a wide-ranging report on a radiological study with clinical- radiological analysis and to infer the accurate opinion or the probable discrepancy analysis.
- Have adequate first round knowledge about the utilization of computers as well as of computer sciences in management and radiological diagnosis.
The requirements of the course for the trainees include a diploma in the degree of human medicine, a one year experience in the area of radio diagnosis and a license to practice and carry out medicine.
The curriculum of the training circles around its core knowledge: the concepts and terminologies of interventional and diagnostic radiology. Second is the usefulness and role of different interventional and diagnostic techniques applicable for all age groups. Third are the various types of compared media, drugs and regular monitoring used in everyday practice of radiology. Next are the indications, doses, the management of reactions and contraindications as well as the complications of sedation drugs and contrast media and then the basic radiographic and radiological procedures for the practice of risk management and clinical audit. Last of all the core skills that the course comprises is to demonstrate safe practice of Radiodiagnosis. As professionals they should be able to perform all scheduled radiological methods and to interpret and properly report all the core radiological techniques and procedures which have been performed in the course of their routine work.
The area of Radiodiagnosis covers the following chapters and topics: neuroradiology, chest radiology, musculoskeletal imaging, gastrointestinal image, uroradiology, head and neck, vascular and intervention imaging, cardiac imaging, paediatric imaging, women’s imaging, intensive care radiology, emergency radiology and oncologic imaging.
