A.Y. 2020/2021
Overall hours
Learning objectives
To provide the essential elements for understanding the structure of radiological images and their processing in the various fields of radiology (Computerized Tomography, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Interventional Radiology and Angiography).
Expected learning outcomes
The student will have to demonstrate to have understood the fundamental bases of the structure of radiological images, and their elaboration in the various fields of radiology (Computerized Tomography, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Interventional Radiology and Angiography).
Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Didactic methods.
Half of the students, according to pre-established shifts, will participate from time to time in face-to-face lessons in classrooms suitably equipped for the Covid emergency, where safety conditions allow it.
Furthermore, to allow them to be used both in synchronous and asynchronous mode for students not present in the classroom, the lessons will be held simultaneously on the Microsoft Teams platform and can be followed both in synchrony on the basis of the first semester and in asynchronous mode, because they will be registered and left on the same platform available to students not present in the classroom.
Lessons may also include pre-recorded materials.
If the situation worsens, the lessons will be delivered through the Microsoft Teams platform and can be followed both in synchronous according to the scheduled time and asynchronously, because they are recorded through the same platform.

Program and reference material.
The program and reference material will not change. The teaching material (slides displayed during the lectures) will be available on the Ariel platform dedicated to teaching.

Methods for verifying learning and evaluation criteria.
The exam will take place in writing in the presence or in the event of an aggravation of the pandemic, with the moodle + seb + webconference modality to be activated in collaboration with the Center for educational innovation and multimedia technologies of the University of Milan.
The oral part of the exam will take place using the Microsoft Teams platform. In this case the duration of the test will be about 20 minutes.
The examination, in particular, will be aimed at:
- ascertain the achievement of the objectives in terms of knowledge and understanding;
- ascertain the ability to apply knowledge and understanding and verify the autonomy of judgment through the discussion of the topics covered by the lessons;
- verify the student's autonomy of judgment also through the analysis of cases discussed during the course or mentioned in the textbooks;
- ascertain the mastery of the specific language of radiological sciences and the ability to present the topics in a clear and logical way, with the necessary links to the content of other courses of the Degree Course.
