Junior rotation 

  • The residents should periodically review cases throughout the day, first on their own, then with the Attending. 
  • In the first 2-3 days of the rotation residents are not required to dictate cross-sectional cases, but should observe style and content of the Attending reports.
  • All x-rays must be pre-dictated by the resident (junior and senior).
  • Preview a MINIMUM of 2 MRIs every day and dictate cases AFTER review with the attending. 
  • Once this is completed, at the Attending’s discretion, residents may either review additional studies one-on- one with the attending and subsequently dictate them or can pre-dictate additional cases, followed by Attending review.

Senior Rotation 

  • Review a MINIMUM of 4 MRIs every day and pre-dictate cases. Then, same as above.

As always, important findings should be called in to the referring clinician and noted in the report.
