Learning objectives
Purpose of this course is to illustrate the students the clinical aspects of the most frequent pathologies studied by imaging techniques, so that they will be able to perform radiological investigations in a discriminating way. Therefore this teaching aims to illustrate the major diseases in general surgery, the main pulmonary malignant pathologies, in particular lung cancer and malignant pleural mesothelioma, the traumatic and non-traumatic skeletal and soft tissue pathologies, as well as the most common families neoplasms and the current interdisciplinary approach.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end, students must:
- Know the basics of the most common diseases in general surgery, pulmonary and osteoarticular fields, and the main types of tumors with their diagnostic and therapeutic approach, in order to optimize radiological investigations from a quality point of view and be able to participate to the radiotherapy processes
- Have acquired an appropriate terminology and to know how to properly interpret requests from physicians and to be able to interact efficiently with doctors, as for the competences related to the technician.
