Students will attend the departmental lectures and conferences, and will have one-hour lectures geared to their level at which an overview of pediatric imaging will be presented over the four-week rotation.

Learning Goals

Students will be exposed to the imaging of a wide spectrum of disorders in the pediatric population in an organ based Radiology Department. Students will learn about the different imaging modalities used in the evaluation of the pediatric diseases and will understand the specific indications and limitations of each of these modalities.
