More than 600 million such examinations are performed each year in the United States. Radiology frequently answers such vital questions as: Does my patient have a medical or surgical condition, such as pneumonia or appendicitis? If so, how far has it progressed? Is it responding to therapy?
Faculty and residents collaborate in presenting a three-dimensional MD curriculum, including lectures given by faculty and residents, one-on-one workstation-based education, and self-driven learning through case presentations and small group sessions.
