Pediatric Radiology is the branch of Diagnostic Imaging concerning patients aged less than 16 years. It encompasses diagnostic imaging of the fetus, the newborn, the infant, the child, and the adolescent. As the child approaches adulthood, disease patterns become more similar to those in adult life.
The training will be hold in local facilities equipped with state-of-art instruments, every technique (CT, MRI, nuclear medicine and interventional radiology, etc.). Participants will have access to an on-line library containing eLearning facilities and the most important journals as well as many teaching files stored in the PACS of the departments hosting the Master's. Why you should attend the master's: opportunities.
Although the primary purpose of the Master is to develop expertise on radiological techniques and imaging findings, the trainee is expected to acquire knowledge of the clinical and pathologic presentation of diseases of the pediatric age.
The aim of the Master is to prepare the Radiologist towards a career in which a consistent part of the professional activity will be dedicated to pediatric imaging. The trainee will be able to manage and develop diagnostic and interventional methods and to transmit her/his specific knowledge to the radiologists not dedicated to pediatric imaging.
