GOALS AND EXPECTATIONS

GOALS:

Residents will become proficient in performing many non-interventional fluoroscopic examinations including but not limited to upper GI studies, barium swallows, esophagrams, small bowel follow through, and barium enema.


EXPECTATIONS
  • Scrubs are appropriate attire
  • Give your pager and/or cell number to techs at Morningside and West sites at the start of your rotation. 
  • Check RIS-IC to see the schedule for the next day, and coordinate with the techs in order to go to the site (West or Morningside) that maximizes your utility.
  • The schedule for each day should have been finalized/planned the previous day
  • Prior to each case gather clinical information & review prior correlative imaging
  • Complete fluoroscopy studies, initially with attending guidance and later independently
Backup Body/Chest CT - As fluoro is sometimes slow, while waiting for fluoro studies (or when there simply are none), touch base with Body/Chest CT attending at the site you are currently located, and read Body CT cases, including protocolling






FLUORO RESIDENT SCHEDULE

Fluoro resident will be responsible for cases at MORNINGSIDE OR WEST ONLY

Mondays: West

Tuesdays: Morningside or West

Wednesdays: Morningside

Thursdays: Morningside (Expect post-op leak studies on Thursdays)

Fridays: Morningside or West

Check RIS-IC and Confirm fluoro cases at Morningside (M) and West the day before to determine which site you should arrive to first on Tues and Fridays. If no cases are scheduled, go to West on Tuesdays and go to Morningside on Fridays.

Also note that MBS can be frequently ordered at MSW, so if no cases are ordered or if you've finished your scheduled cases at M, please remain or head to MSW for potential add-ons. 

If an inpatient case gets added on at either site, your priority should be to travel immediately to that site. Inpatients always take priority. 



EMERGENT FLUORO STUDIES

INPATIENTS & MBS:

Emergent fluoroscopy studies (r/o leak after bypass, etc), as well as any Modified Barium Swallow studies, will be performed by an onsite resident.

Should an emergent study arise and the Morningside-West Fluoro resident is performing cases at another site, resident coverage will be provided using the site-specific hierarchy below:

    - BI:    Body CT S 
    - M:    Body CT W/MR --> US M  (R2+ then R1) --> NeuroM
    - W:    Body CT W/MR --> Nucs W/PET --> Cardiac
