The Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Division of Body Imaging, accepts up to five (5) physicians annually for a one (1) year Fellowship in Body Imaging.
The Body Imaging Fellowship offers extensive clinical experience in US, CT, MRI, and interventional procedures of the chest, abdomen and pelvis. The physician may choose to do an entire year dedicated to Body Imaging, or accept a reduction in Body imaging rotations and have a minor focus in Breast Imaging, Musculoskeletal Imaging or PET Imaging. Ample opportunity for research will be provided.
The division is staffed by twelve Body Imaging fellowship trained faculty, a CT Physicist and an MRI physicist. Equipment on campus includes one 3 Tesla MR scanner, four 1.5 Tesla MR scanners, a dedicated 1.5 Tesla cardiac MRI unit, one Flash CT scanner, 7 multidetector CT scanners (ranging from 10 to 64 slice), and ten ultrasound scanners. Two PET-CT scanners are stationed in the Nuclear Medicine Section. Our radiology department has an advanced 3-D imaging lab with multiple workstations. If you choose to include the minor focus in Breast Imaging, you will be staffed by 12 Breast Imaging fellowship trained faculty, with opportunities to read Screening/Diagnostic Mammography, Digital Tomosynthesis Mammography, Breast MRI, Breast Ultrasound, and to perform image guided breast biopsies. If you choose to include the minor focus in Musculoskeletal Imaging, you will be staffed by four MSK Imaging fellowship trained faculty, with opportunities to read US, CT, and MRI of all joints and extremities, as well as perform image guided procedures such as arthrograms, joint injections, and bone biopsies. If you choose to include the minor focus in PET Imaging, you will be staffed by four PET Imaging fellowship trained Nuclear Medicine faculty, with opportunities to read PET imaging of multiple diseases with different radiotracers, such as FDG, Axumin, and Dotatate.
