The student acquires the techniques for the radiological study of the apparatus with and without MDC, the preparation of the patient and knows the relative MDC, the rules of radiation protection and patient handling.

Course contents

The teaching of the Course of Technical Sciences of the Radiological Imaging of the Abdomen and of the Chest with and without contrast medium proposes to make the student acquire the techniques useful for the radiological studies of the thoraco-abdominal systems with and without contrast medium and the relative preparations of the patient.

The program is divided into:

1) Hint geometric parameters, planes and projections, KV and mAsec, time and physical parameters

2) MdC Natural and artificial used for diagnostic purposes in the human body

3) Chest X-ray Study: Anatomy, projections, criteria and problems based on the method of execution (standard, bed, SO, adult and pediatric)

4) Radiographic study of the abdomen: Anatomy, projections, criteria and problems based on the method of execution (standard, bed, orthostasis and supine, in SO, adult and pediatric)

5) Radiological Study of the Digestive System diagnostic investigations with and without contrast medium in reference to the First Pathways, Esophagus, Stomach, Small enema, Opaque Enema, Defecography and Fistulography, outline of anatomy, preparation and execution, projections and correctness criteria.

6) Radiological study of swallowing and salivary glands, outline of anatomy, preparation and execution, projections and correctness criteria.

7) Radiological study of the biliary tract: investigations in reference to intraoperative and post operative cholangiography, percutaneous cholangiography and ERCP, cholacystography for OS and cholangiography, outline of anatomy, preparation and execution, projections and correctness criteria.

8) Radiological Study of the Urinary Tract: Cystography, Urography, Pyelography, outline of anatomy, preparation and execution, projections and correctness criteria.

9) Radiological study of male and female reproductive systems: hysterosalpingography, outline of anatomy, preparation and execution, projections and correctness criteria.
