Students on a two week elective will observe all procedures performed in a busy pediatric interventional radiology practice including the work up and post procedure management of patients. Students on a 4 week elective should expect to progress from observation to “scrubbing in” and get more actively involved with cases as the rotation evolves. This will occur mainly under the supervision of one of the three full time attendings, although pediatric radiology fellows may also be involved. The student is expected to attend the 7:30 AM radiology medical student, resident, and fellow lecture daily. In addition, an interesting case conference on Friday at noon is also encouraged. Students will participate in: - Supervised direct patient contact in the operating room, the interventional radiology suite, and at the patient bedside with an attending during which the student will observe procedures and tools used to perform those procedures. - Case based discussion during daily “morning viewbox rounds” and during inpatient rounds - “Workstation teaching” during consultation work up - Self-directed learning including presentations - Didactic conferences in the hospital.
By the end of this course, students should know or be able to: Discuss the indications and contraindications for commonly performed procedures in interventional radiology. List the steps of common interventional radiology procedures. Describe the challenges facing interventional radiologists in performing procedures at the bedside. Describe how diagnostic radiology modalities impact the decision to perform procedures and aid in the performance of procedures. Identify the appropriate imaging studies for common clinical scenarios.
