After the Physikum, the main lectures in imaging techniques, diagnostics and therapies and the seminar in Intersectional studies: Imaging, radiation therapy, radiation safety students should:
- know and be able to reproduce the basics of sonography, conventional X-ray diagnostics, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), angiography including interventional procedures, radiotherapy and nuclear medical procedures.
- know and reflect the physical and legal bases, technical principles and protective measures to be applied in diagnostic and therapeutic applications of ionizing radiation and magnetic fields.
- be able to name common contrast agents and describe their use, as well as contraindications and possible complications in radiological and nuclear medicine procedures, and explain their mode of action and application.
- be able to recognize and name anatomical structures of the body on imaging examinations and deviations from the regular state.
- know, select and reproduce the safest and fastest imaging method for diagnosing common and/or life-threatening diseases.
- be able to detect and reproduce external and life-threatening pathological findings on imaging examinations.
- know indications and contraindications, patient preparation and course of interventions in radiology as well as common methods of radiotherapy and nuclear medicine therapy.
- know and reflect the importance of diagnostic and interventional radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine in the context of other clinical procedures.
- Respectful treatment of patients and colleagues
- Complete, correct history taking as a prerequisite for the implementation of appropriate imaging diagnostics in order to allow for a rational therapy as a consequence of which the patient should feel better
- Recognize links between imaging diagnostics and therapeutic consequences
- Understand the need for continuous radiological education and training
- Human, medical, legal and economic responsibility of medical actis
It is recommended to attend the following lectures on imaging procedures:
2nd clinical semester:
Imaging Procedures Part 1 - Basics (PDF Download)
Place/time: MONDAYS 3:00 pm - 3:45 pm
summer semester 2020: lecture live via video conference
This event will teach you how the most important diagnostic and therapeutic medical imaging techniques work. This knowledge is a prerequisite for clinical QB's, "Imaging Procedures Part 2 - Diagnostics and Therapy", and the seminars "QB Intersectional studies: Imaging, radiation therapy, radiation safety”.
Immediately after the lecture "Imaging Procedures Part 1" the lecture "Anatomy in Radiology" (see also under "Additional offers") takes place. This event has been set up to form a bridge from anatomy knowledge from the pre-clinical studies to imaging anatomy. The latter is a prerequisite for diagnostics in all clinical subjects including clinical QB's, "Imaging Procedures Part 2 - Diagnostics and Therapy", and the seminar "QB Intersectional studies: Imaging, radiation therapy, radiation safety”. However to date there is no specific course are lecture in the medical curriculum that covers the need for an understanding of imaging anatomy.
4th clinical semester:
Imaging Procedures Part 2 - Diagnostics and Therapy (PDF Download)
Place/time: In the summer semester 2020, video recordings of lectures that were thematically tailored to the seminar "QB Intersectional studies: Imaging, radiation therapy, radiation safety” are provided Mondays via eCampus.
These lectures provide essential knowledge about imaging diagnostics and explains imaging-driven therapeutic options including cost / risk/benefit assessments. These lectures are essential for a successful participation in the seminars "QB Intersectional studies: Imaging, radiation therapy, radiation safety” and our exam. However, participation in the lecture does not replace reading and memorizing contents at home.
Participating clinical institutes:
- Clinic for Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology
- Clinic for Neuroradiology
- Clinic for Radiation Therapy and Radiooncology
- Clinic and Polyclinic for Nuclear Medicine
4th clinical semester:
Mandatory seminar "Imaging procedures, radiation treatment and radiation protection" (PDF download)
Prerequisite for this seminar are the knowledge that is imparted in the lectures "Imaging Procedures part 1: techniques" in the second clinical semester and "Imaging Procedures part 2: diagnostics and therapies" which is held in the same week or the week before the seminar.
Various topics and a wide range of imaging techniques are covered in seminar group size and small group trainings on the basis of case studies. Lessons take place in the "flipped classroom" format, so that you can prepare the cases of the week well in advance at home and ask questions and learn more about the topics during the seminar time with the teacher. For follow-up training, you will find numerous questions and answers about the topic of the week in the eCampus after each seminar so that you can check your newly acquired skills.
In order to receive the certificate for this course, regular participation in the seminar (i.e. less than 15% of the appointments have been missed) and passing the eKlausur, in which the contents of the two recommended lectures and the seminar are checked using images (see examination), are necessary.
Please also see "additional offers" to check if there is anything else that may be of your interest among our numerous additional offers that we provide. You can contact the teachers and register to either of the lectures by clicking on the respective buttons there.
Examinations: computer-based (eKlausur) using image material
In the second clinical semester, an eKlausur takes place in the examination phase at the beginning of the lecture-free time, with 20 questions, which will be used to check whether you are familiar with the classical imaging techniques.
In the fourth clinical semester, a second exam takes place in the examination phase at the beginning of the lecture-free time. 40 questions are asked this time, which check the acquired knowledge from the “Imaging Procedures part 2”-lectures and seminar “Intersectional studies: Imaging, radiation therapy, radiation safety”.
The examination in the fourth clinical semester can be started regardless of whether the seminar was attended, but in order to receive the certificate for this course you need to have passed both exams and have successfully attended the seminar.
In the summer semester 2020 and winter semester 2020/2021 there is a transition phase in which the students of the fourth clinical semester are examined in the examination both the contents of the lectures "Imaging Procedures part 1" and “Imaging Procedures part 2" as well as the above mentioned seminar with 40 questions total. Here the successful attendance of the seminar is of course also necessary to receive the certificate.
The electronic exam will probably be held in the lecture hall centre in the Poppelsdorf campus, Endenicher Straße 19c.
Don't forget your id card and student ID!
In addition to the main lectures and the seminar, numerous optional additional courses are offered to cover a further spectrum of imaging procedures.
ATTENTION: In the winter semester 2020/2021, due to the switch to online teaching within the CoViD 19 pandemic, this offer unfortunately cannot be made in full. Please contact the respective lecturer to clarify whether and in what form your course can be offered.
