Overall hours
Learning objectives
The Course aims to give the student his final preparation to work environment, through a depth experience in Conventional Radiology, plus the chance to practice on Computed Tomography, Interventional Radiology and Mammography. The student traineeship will also be focused on Radiotherapy, where the student will get familiar with the oncological patient and with the main radiotherapic treatment procedures, and and Nuclear Medicine (gamma camera, PET, Hot lab).

At the end, students must:
- know how to apply the protocols of investigation in Traditional Radiology, in standard or emergency situations, and know how to adapt them to non-conventional situations in order to get a proper iconographic result
- know how to apply the MRI diagnostic protocols
- know how to verify the technical quality of an MRI image
- know how to manage patient, equipment and devices in Interventional Radiology
- know how to apply the diagnostic protocols in Senology
- know how to assess the technical quality of a Senology examination
- know how to apply the radiation protection principles in Radiotherapy
- know how to read and delivery a treatment plan in Radiotherapy
- know how to work with in team for simulation procedures in Radiotherapy
- equipment management in Nuclear Medicine
- application of diagnostic protocols in Nuclear Medicine
- hot lab procedures
- use of PET Scanner
- tutorials about quality control procedures
- know how to relate to the patient in different possible situations during daily work.
Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Didactic methods.
The students, according to pre-established shifts, will carry out practical activities at the affiliated hospitals. If the epidemiological situation were to worsen, part of the internship will be carried out online, as per the resolution of the Interdepartmental Didactic Board. Any teaching materials will be uploaded to the Microsoft Teams platform. Lessons may also include pre-recorded materials.
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 Micrsoft Teams platform dedicated to teaching.
Methods for verifying learning and evaluation criteria.
The exam will take place orally and in the presence or in the event of a worsening of the epidemiological situation, the Microsoft Teams platform will be used. 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 course;
- 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.
