Common training objectives (or common core)
Students must acquire a scientific grounding and theoretical-practical preparation for practicing as a specialist and the methodology and culture for lifelong learning, as well as a degree of professional, decisional and operative autonomy in the selected field of specialization. Students must acquire: core competencies deriving from the basic sciences, which underpin all the specialization paths and are indispensable for understanding instrumentation and the correct application of procedures and methods; core competencies in molecular and genetic biology, advanced knowledge of etiopathogenic mechanisms in neoplastic disease, adequate theoretical knowledge and clinical practice for prevention, diagnosis, therapy and follow-up in neoplastic patients; lastly, clinical knowledge enabling an accurate assessment of pathologies so as to select the most appropriate diagnostic, interventional and therapeutic options, also in compliance with existing norms in the field of radiation protection and protection, assessing risks, costs and benefits; the ability to communicate clearly and sympathetically with patients and family members. Lastly, students must acquire the ability to liaise with attending physicians and other specialists, as well as collaborate with other radiology professionals and understand scientific English.

Core training objectives
-fundamentals of mathematics and physics, and of radiation physics in particular;
-statistics;
-IT;
-tracer theory;
-image processing;

-structure and functioning of imaging devices;
-ways in which ionizing radiation and biological structures interact;
-radiosensitivity of tissues and organs;
-radiation protection and radiation pathology;
-foundations in physiology and physical pathology;

-application of radiometabolic therapy to neoplastic and non-neoplastic processes;
-principles and application of radioimmunology, immunoradiometry and other techniques relating to in-vitro nuclear medicine;
-diagnostic methods that do not make use of radioactive tracers (CT, NMR);
-ability to integrate and interpret results obtained through medical-nuclear methods with those obtained through radiodiagnostic methods, focusing on methods for merging imagery;
-organization of activities in a nuclear medicine service and quality assurance principles;
-knowledge of the basic methods for planning scientific research correctly;
-knowledge of norms and legislation pertaining to the use of radiative energy
