The student will be exposed to all diagnostic radiology procedures, including fluoroscopic guided contrast studies and joint injections; ultrasound guided fluid aspirations (including paracentesis, thoracentesis, fluid collections), ultrasound guided biopsies and fine needle aspirations; and CT guided biopsies; and selected MR procedures. Where appropriate, the student will learn how to perform procedures with imaging guidance. The student will be responsible for obtaining relevant history/physical examination and discussing the patient's care with the referring team. At the end of the rotation, the student should understand the ACR appropriateness criteria in order to request the appropriate study, have a deep fund of knowledge regarding image guided procedures, and understand the role of radiology in the management of patients.
