About the Program
We currently offer a one-year non-accredited fellowship in Body Imaging with opportunities for participation in research and teaching and a broad range of clinical activities. Fellows rotate on Body CT, Ultrasound, GI/GU Fluoroscopy and Body MRI. The latter will include 3-4 months of primary responsibility in Body MRI/MRA but could also include experience in musculoskeletal, cardiac, chest, and neuro. Up to an additional three months will be flexible and chosen by the candidate if staffing allows. In addition, for each fellow we place on file, at least 2 written evaluations are done annually.
The Section of Body Imaging is an active service with 7 staff members whose primary interest is adult body imaging, performing GI and GU fluoroscopy and contrast studies, CT, CTA, CT colonography, US, MRI and MRA, and body interventional procedures.
Our equipment is state-of-the-art, including two Siemens 16-Slice Sensations CT scanners (one devoted entirely to research), a Siemens 64-slice scanner, three Toshiba Aquilions, four 1.5 Tesla MRI scanners (one of these is a state-of-the-art GECVII MRI scanner), a Siemens 3T MR, 7 GE and Toshiba ultrasound machines, and two recently installed angiographic suites.
The fellowship includes hands-on experience with all GI, GU, and ultrasound procedures, as well as full participation in daily conferences and imaging rounds. Opportunities also exist for research and experience in specialized procedures, such as CT colonography, and intraoperative ultrasound. In addition to reading
The fellowship carries a faculty appointment in the College of Medicine.
