Background Information

I currently intern at Holy Name Hospital in the Department of Radiology. Holy Name Hospital performs more than 120,000 procedures annually with its state-of-the-art Interventional, MRI, Ultrasound, Cat Scan, Digital Radiography, Nuclear Medicine, Computerized Radiography, Mammography and Vascular Departments. It has an expanded Interventional Radiology Department which performs highly-specialized procedures such as chemo liver embolizations, carotid stenting, uterine fibroid embolizations and endovenous laser treatment of varicose veins. A web-based Picture Archive and Communications System (PACS) enables physicians to view, archive, and process high quality images at anytime and from anywhere. The highly-sophisticated system is also filmless and paperless, making it more effective and cost-efficient.

Summary of Internship

I essentially watch technicians take these pictures. For the most part they explain to me what is going on and what it is I see in the pictures. Sometimes I deliver juice with a contrast medium in it for the patients to drink.
