Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project without Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
Radiology is a very important medical discipline. The different imaging modalities: conventional X ray, ultrasonography, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging are nowadays very useful tools in order to establish the diagnosis of different pathologies. In this project we will focus on studying the sensitivity and specificity of the different Diagnostic methods, and in which situations they are used.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of this project is to get to know the basics and principles of different imaging modalities that are used in diagnosis and treatment. As well as to learn about new techniques, like cryoablation and improvement of the recuperation of Helium, the department is researching. The results this study hopes to obtain are a better understanding and improvement of the different diagnostic methods.
What techniques and methods are used?
Being a clinical research without lab work the techniques and methods used are Conventional radiology, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and interventional radiology. They will be used to get a better understanding of how they work in order to study how they can improve and which technique is better for each pathology.
What is the role of the student?
- The student will mainly observe
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
To watch the way in which the examination is performed To comment with the tutor on the result of the examination. To study the files of the Department. To go to the Lab in the Faculty of Cience to learn how the Helium is recovered in MRIs machines, understanding the different properties of this element and the benefits it has. In the Faculty of Science the student will learn about the cryogenic techniques. In the Department of Radiology the student will observe new cryogenic techniques being practiced and researched on in this department. At the end of the month he/she will do a presentation about what the student has learned
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
No
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- The student will prepare a presentation
- The student will have the opportunity to present the results together with the supervisor at a conference
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
None
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
Yes
Liability insurance needed
Hours
7
