Residents undertake procedures as a component of many rotations outside of their dedicated interventional rotations. Each subspecialty performs procedures as part of their clinical service. For example, the MSK section undertakes joint aspirations and injections as well as bone biopsies whereas the abdominal section performs image-guided biopsies of masses in the chest and abdomen, paracenteses, and thoracenteses. Neuroradiology undertakes fluoroscopic-guided lumbar punctures.
These experiences allow for a strong foundation in procedural technical skills over the course of the residency. Besides procedures, ultrasound scanning is emphasized with dedicated labs and clinical experiences to allow a resident to become proficient in scanning.
