While in the reading areas students can observe the imaging exams and interact with the radiologist as the results are interpreted and dictated. This experience offers opportunity to correlate patient clinical presentation and findings with the results from the appropriate diagnostic imaging exam(s). In addition to faculty lectures and time in the reading areas, students have access to the radiology teaching area where their knowledge can be augmented by participation in teaching files covering the full spectrum of diagnostic imaging. During the two weeks, students are required to complete an assigned programmed text on the principles of chest Roentgenology.
