Each working day in the Radiology department begins with one of the many interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary team meetings that we take part in. These meetings are an invaluable opportunity for members of the Radiology team to interact with our medical and surgical colleagues, to discuss interesting and challenging cases where the patients’ imaging may be the key to diagnosis, to discuss cases which may be suitable for an interventional radiological procedure and, in the case of MDTs, to play a key role in the decision-making process in the management of patients with lung, colorectal, pancreatic, hepatobiliary, urological, gynaecological and musculoskeletal malignancies.
We expect medical students rotating through the department to attend some of these meetings each week. Please ask one of the Radiology registrars or consultants at each meeting to sign your attendance sheet. The schedule for Radiology meetings is provided below. A printed list will also be issued to you when you arrive in the department.
