Radiation diagnostics in osteology (Electronic educational course, 36 hours)
Category of students: the main contingent of specialists-radiologists (level of professional education "Medical care", "Pediatrics" , training in internship/residency in the specialty "Radiology"); specialists from related medical specialties: "Rheumatology", "Traumatology and Orthopedics", "Osteopathy", "Oncology", "Surgery", "Children's Surgery", "Children's Oncology", "Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine".
The complexity of the program: 36 academic hours (zet).
Form of training: correspondence, distance learning by means of electronic educational environment with the use of interactive communication technologies.
In the materials of the PC course, the possibilities of various methods of radiation diagnostics in identifying signs of bone and joint pathology are presented. The leading place is given to X-ray techniques (standard, functional and microfocus radiography, multi-section and cone-beam computed tomography), which are the most common and effective in detecting diseases of the musculoskeletal system. The use of clarifying methods of examination, such as magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound and radionuclide studies, significantly expands the diagnostic capabilities.
The materials of the lecture presentations present the main signs (semiotics) of diseases and injuries of bones and joints, the diagnosis of which is possible with the implementation of a multidisciplinary approach, the interaction of radiologists and clinicians (rheumatologists, orthopedic traumatologists, osteopaths, oncologists, surgeons, specialists in physical therapy and sports medicine), the comparison of clinical and radiation data with the results of laboratory and pathomorphological studies.
The PC course is aimed at:
- acquisition of knowledge about the possibilities of various radiation methods and techniques in the diagnosis of pathology of the musculoskeletal system;
- study of a complex of signs that characterize changes in the shape, size, contour and structure of bones, bone marrow, periosteum, fibrous-cartilage structures, capsular-ligamentous apparatus of joints, soft tissues in diseases and injuries;
- ability to analyze diagnostic images (radiographs, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging) for various pathological changes in bones and joints.
Students who successfully pass the final certification in the form of a test (from 70% to 100% correct answers) are issued certificates of advanced training.
