PGY1: Focus on becoming a strong clinician. Don't stress about radiology. There is no reason to do any heavy reading or start memorizing differentials. Instead, we suggest the following:
1) Focus on Cross-Sectional Anatomy
2) Review the resources under Medical Students
PGY2: Start by watching all of our introductory CT videos (intro to CT, CT head and C-spine, CT abdomen). Then, access our case based CT course to learn everything you need to know to start covering on-call.
PGY3-5: Watch the rest of our videos, and access our CT and MRI case-based courses. CT courses are appropriate for all levels; MRI courses appropriate for PGY3-5, fellows, staff radiologists
Introduction to Abdominal MRI
Prior to your Body MRI Rotation, you should watch this video in its entirety. This reviews basic physics and pulse sequences, and then discusses pulse sequences commonly used in abdominal imaging.
A normal and abnormal abdominal MRI are reviewed, with emphasis on the normal appearance. The concepts introduced throughout this video are essential for you to understand.
Future videos will include more specific discussions of Pelvic, Liver, and Prostate MRI.
