|Lecturer||Katsuhiko KATO, Professor|
|Department||School of Medicine / Graduate School of Medicine, 2011 Spring & Fall|
|Recommended for:||School of Health Sciences Radiological Technology 3rd year students (2・1.5 hours / session 1 session / week 15 weeks / semester)|
The basics of nuclear medicine are explained using power-point slides. The students are given chances to observe many images of actual cases of various diseases so that they can acquire basic knowledge concerning clinical examinations relating to nuclear medicine. Because there are dozens of clinical examinations relating to nuclear medicine, it is difficult to learn them all during the lectures. The students must make an effort to acquire the practical ability necessary for radiological technicians in clinical setting by repeatedly studying actual clinical cases of various diseases. In general, many exam questions about the clinical examinations of nuclear medicine are included in the national examination for radiological technicians. Special consideration is also given for students to learn the practical knowledge useful for the national examination for radiological technicians. This course is opens in the 3rd year and is therefore designed as a basis for clinical practice in the 4th year class.
Because it is impossible to cover all the necessary points of nuclear medicine during the lectures, the students must learn the rest using the textbooks cited above. If students have any questions, please ask me during the lectures or try to visit me.
The following lectures (1-7) are also held as Radioisotope Technology for the students belonging to the Course of Medical Technology.
