Description and Goals:

Nuclear Medicine is very active with a wide range of imaging techniques with daily interaction with the Cardiology, Oncology, Surgical and General Medical Service. There is a very active CCU with on site acute intervention using the C-PORT angioplasty/stent waiver. Cardiac Nuclear imaging is heavily used. The rotation is designed to develop a range of basic clinical and nuclear laboratory skills, procedural skills and exposure to interdisciplinary medicine. Daily work with the attendings centers around the Nuclear Medicine unit on the Ground floor. The rotation includes heavy emphasis on cardiac imaging with participation in exercise testing. Participation with PET imaging is now integral to the elective and is a regular part of weekly GI, tumor board and lymphoma conferences.
