Fall, spring, summer. 2 credits. Letter grades only.

Required component of Clinical Rotations (Foundation Course VI).

M. S. Thompson, staff.

Two-week clinical experience in the imaging section of the Cornell University Hospital for Animals. Students use radiographic, ultrasonographic, CT, MRI, and nuclear medicine imaging techniques to evaluate animal patients under treatment in the Cornell University Hospital for Animals. Students obtain and interpret radiographic and ultrasonographic studies with guidance from radiology faculty, residents, and technical staff. On-line teaching materials are used to familiarize students with radiographic and cross-sectional imaging examples of common diseases of large- and small-animal species. Small-group discussions are included to present and discuss the teaching files and current cases, in addition to the safe use of X-ray-producing equipment.
