This subject will begin the students' comprehensive education in Nuclear Medicine procedures. It deals with the development and comparison of methods appropriate to each of a number of important body systems, including: Musculoskeletal, Gastrointestinal and Genito-urinary. The subject aims to provide a broad based understanding of the principles and practice of Nuclear Medicine Techniques, providing a sound platform of knowledge for students to take into their clinical placement.
No offerings have been identified for this subject in 2018.

Module 1: Musculoskeletal System: Radionuclides and radiopharmaceuticals Physiology, pathophysiology, and anatomy. Protocol variations for differing pathologies (dynamic, blood pool and static imaging) Positioning techniques for imaging Quantitative information available Bone mineral densitometry Paediatric considerations Image interpretation Module 2: Gastro-intestinal System: Radionuclides and radiopharmaceuticals Physiology, pathophysiology, and anatomy Gastrointestinal bleed studies, biliary and liver studies, Meckel's diverticulum, gastric emptying and milk study protocols Positioning techniques for imaging Quantitative information available Paediatric considerations Image interpretation Module 3: Genito-urinary System: Radionuclides and radiopharmaceuticals Physiology, pathophysiology, and anatomy Differential, ERPF, glomerular filtration rate, mean transit time, Lasix half clearance, renal scarring, ureteric reflux protocols Interventional renal studies Positioning techniques for imaging Quantitative information available with and without imaging Paediatric considerations Image interpretation Clinical Component: This subject will provide the student with a 5 week program of directly supervised clinical experience in appropriate Nuclear Medicine Centres. Emphasis will be placed on complementing and consolidating acquired knowledge. Problem Based Learning styles will enable the student to expand on these areas where the work environment provides other experience. Students will build on their patient-care skills and be exposed to different clinical situations
