Academic Catalog


Office: Detroit Receiving Hospital 3L-8, 4201 St. Antoine, Detroit, MI 48201

M.D. program instruction by this department is directed toward a total integration of the fundamentals of radiology with the basic sciences, particularly anatomy, physiology, chemistry and pathology. Radiologic instruction is correlated at the M.D. Year I and II levels with other departments. Year III-level instruction is clinically oriented and numerous radiologic electives are offered in Year IV. Various diagnostic imaging techniques such as conventional radiographic procedures; radionuclide imaging, both static and dynamic; ultrasonography; computerized tomography, MR; and digital subtraction radiography are included in both the undergraduate and graduate level of instruction. The pre-clinical program has been designed to orient the anatomy student to normal roentgen anatomy and also to relate this to aspects of physical diagnosis. There is further coordination in anatomy and physiology to emphasize function and in turn relate this to aspects of history taking. In the fields of physiology and physiologic chemistry, radioactive isotope techniques are presented relating particularly to endocrine functions, renal functions and blood formation. Correlated teaching is also carried in gross pathology.

In the clinical years, teaching of diagnostic radiology, radiation therapy, nuclear radiology, computerized tomography, MRI, and ultrasonography is related to total patient care and such teaching is, therefore, predominantly correlated with other clinical departments. The clinical aspects of diagnostic radiology, radiation therapy and radionuclide procedures and techniques are taught during clerkship and in the clinics and various inter-departmental and intra-departmental conferences.
