Ultrasound Imaging

The ultrasound rotation is a very pleasant and essential part of all radiology residency training program. It is a hands-on section where residents work closely with sonographers (ultrasound technicians) and often interact directly with patients. As part of the rotation, we do a significant number of US-guided procedures including liver biopsies, paracenteses, thoracenteses, fine needle aspirations of nodules and fluid collection aspirations.  The ultimate goal of this rotation is for residents to learn to scan patients in an efficient and successful manner, to be familiar with normal anatomy and be able to recognize abnormal findings.
