Residents rotate in Gastrointestinal (GI) Radiology during each year of our four-year program. They are taught the use of the fluoroscopic equipment, the performance and interpretation of fluoroscopic examinations, as well as how to chose and tailor the correct examination for the appropriate clinical indications. Both a reading list and printed standard operating procedures are provided and residents are given increasing levels of responsibility during the course of their training.
Residents are instructed in the correlation of different imaging examinations as well as endoscopic and pathologic correlation with images. GI radiology conference is given three times each month and consists of both didactic and interactive questions and answer sessions with clinical correlation. Additional correlative conferences take place with the gastroenterologists and surgeons. Residents frequently participate in interactions with other clinical services.
