Department of radiology and Radiological Science

Clinical Rotations

One of the greatest assets of the department is state-of-the-art equipment. We are at the cutting edge with 2, 64-slice CT's and a dual source CT scanner. MRI includes a 3 Tesla Philips magnet and 3 1.5 T units. Ultrasound and Flouroscopy equipment have all been purchased in the last 2 years. PET/CT was installed in 2006.

PACS - We are an all digital department, including mammography. MUSC was a development site for AGFA and has been on PACS for nearly 10 years. For digital post-processing we have multiple workstations from Vital Images, Siemens, GE, and TeraRecon. A thin-client server allows on-the-fly 3D processing from any location.

The resident rotations are divided into 4 week blocks. Typically one to two residents are assigned to any particular service. Residents are expected to be at work at 7:30 am and leave generally by 5:00 pm.  Below is an example of the general 4 year rotation schedule for each year.
