This is a department where students learn about diagnostic images involving the use of X-ray, magnetic resonance and ultrasound energies in the diagnosis of diseases.

The department also includes radiation Oncology section where student learn about radioactive and pharmaceutical therapy in Oncology.


The objective of the Radiology undergraduate course is to teach the students in various aspects of Radiology as detailed in the Radiology section of MDCN Red book, which are detailed below.

It is expected that by the end of the undergraduate period, the student should have acquired knowledge in the the areas specified and detailed below.


(a)Chest X-ray, which is the single most basic principle. He should be able to identify:

Gross change in the lung field e.g. Pnuemonias, collap'se, fibrosis, canon ball secondaries, pneumothorax, pleural fluid collection, acute pulmonary oedema and the various presentati9ns of tuberculosis.

Cardiac contour e.g. right and/or left side cardiac enlargement, left atrial enlargement, aortic arch unfolding, aortic aneurysm, etc.

Thoracic cage: Rib fractures; rib changes in rickets Soft tissue change in the chest wall

(b) X-ray of Bones

He should also be able to identify, not only gross fractures, but the not so obvious greenstick fractures of childhood, which occur most commonly and will come to him as a casualty officer.

(c) He should be able to review a plain x-ray of the abdomen and recognize:

(i) Normal bowel distribution pattern

(ii) Evidence of a pneumoperitonetum (bowel perforation)

(iii) Normal and enlarged liver, spleen and kidney;

(iv) Various forms of bowel obstruction - Upper small bowel obstruction, mid    small bowel obstruction, Distal small bowel obstruction, Distal colonic obstruction, Mid-colonic obstruction and Proximal colonic obstruction.

(d) He should be able to identify

(i) Radio-opague gall stones, ureteric calculi and bladder stones.

(ii) Parasitic calcifications.

(e) The student should be able to recognize:

(i) Degenerative changes in the spine

(ii) Vertebral collapse

(iii) Paravertebral abscesses

(f) He should be able to assess contrast examinations for gross pathology including

Fluoroscopy e.g:

 (i) Barium meal

(ii) Barium Enema

Intravenous urography Cholecystography, Cholangiography Cystourethrography



Ventriculography. Cerebral Aniography

Arteriography Aortography Hysterosalpingography

He should be able to appreciate:

The use of radioisotopes in Radiology

Radiotherapy in the management of malignant disease

(g) Radiography: He should be conversant with radiologic examination of the extremities: Normal radiological anatomy of the upper and lower extremities, the thorax, the spine and the pelvic girdle.

Appearance of ossification centres and bone age determination.

He should also be familiar with radiological anatomy of the skull

as seen in the following radiographic projections: Anteroposterior, Lateral, Towne's Submentovertical (SMV) and Occipitomental

(h) He should understand the principle of international radiography.

The student should be taught the importance of filling a request form for radiological examination adequately. He should not only know what to ask for, but also the appropriate sequence of requests till radiological examination is exhausted.
