RADGY 696 P-Nuclear Medicine Clerkship (*, max. 12)
This clerkship consists of daily participation in the activities of the Nuclear Medicine clinic at the University of Washington Medical Center. This includes the technical performance, and diagnostic interpretation of nuclear medicine imaging studies (planar scintigraphy, SPECT/CT, PET/CT). Also emphasized is the integration of this diagnostic information together with other imaging studies (MRI, CT, plain films), with type and timing of treatments, and with biomarker levels for a more comprehensive patient assessment. Nuclear Medicine scans cover a wide array of disorders including cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurologic disorders, pulmonary, GI, GU, osseous and endocrine diseases. Other activities observed by the student will include an array of therapeutic Nuclear Medicine procedures using radiopharmaceuticals to treat bone pain, metastatic bone disease, hyperthyroidism, thyroid cancer and certain hematologic malignancies. The student will participate in these activities alongside Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Radiology residents and faculty physicians. The student will attend the five hours of weekly lectures and clinical case conferences organized for the residents. Four-week clerkships are the usual duration. Prerequisite: permission of instructor. Offered: AWSpS.
