medical education, radiology and active methodologies.


Radiology is a medical specialty that renews itself and advances every day, in a process of modernization that, in addition to investments, requires a continuous effort to update. The use of radiological images is a fundamental part of learning because of its availability and undeniable clinical relevance. Thus this study will make it possible to review how the teaching and learning of radiology and diagnostic imaging in medical education is developed in an integrated and interdisciplinary undergraduate curriculum in medicine. Objective: To identify the importance of radiology and diagnostic imaging in undergraduate medical education in a curriculum using active methodologies. Methodology: The present study is a systematic literature review, therefore it does not require ethics committee approval, it was carried out from a screening of articles in the period from January 2011 to March 2021 from two electronic databases: PubMed and Science Direct. The descriptors used in the search were "radiology" AND "medical education". Academic articles were searched for authors who correlated Active Methodologies, Medical Education, Transversal Teaching in Medical Graduation, Radiology and Diagnosis. Results and Discussion: Studies that had Active Methodologies, Medical Education or Radiology and diagnosis were included in this review, as well as literature review studies that accounted for 05 articles and editorials. To better understand the role of radiology in medical practice, it is necessary to review its history in medicine. Since the advent of imaging exams, radiology and diagnostic imaging have presented important advances in several areas. Its implementation in the curriculum was addressed by the author AL QAHTANI et al, 2014, in which he pointed out the importance of a cross-curriculum for the insertion of the axis of this skill and not only a discipline in a single period of the course, because the content is related to other areas of Medicine, such as Medical Pathology, Human Anatomy and Emergency and Urgent Care.With all this mentioned, it should be understood that the teaching environment should be seen as a place of individual and collective transformation, being receptive to new methodologies and new approaches to teaching and insertion of new skills to the students.
