Abdominal Imaging Fellowship
The Abdominal Imaging Fellowship in body imaging includes additional training in magnetic resonance imaging, computed body tomography, sonography, and interventional techniques.
The fellowship emphasizes magnetic resonance imaging with six months devoted to MRI and three months each to ultrasound and CT. The MRI service covers pelvic and abdominal imaging including hepatic, pancreatic and renal MR and MRCP as well as MSK MR and MR angiographic procedures. MR practice includes both in-hospital and free-standing outpatient clinical experience. MR scanners consist of state-of-the-art 3T and 1.5T GE and Siemens units. The CT experience is appropriate to a tertiary level medical center with a significant and increasing referral pattern from oncology, transplantation, gastroenterology, surgical subspecialties and trauma. Cutting edge CT technology including dual energy and iterative reconstruction is utilized in an increasing volume of thoracoabdominal aortic and CT coronary arteriography, abdominal visceral and extremity CT angiographic studies. Ultrasound experience is broad based (abdomen, pelvic, peripheral vascular and small parts).
All imaging equipment is state-of-the-art and the reading environment includes an integrated PACS and electronic medical records system with digital voice recognition for transcription.
Fellows perform biopsy and abscess drainage procedures utilizing sonography and CT as appropriate under direction of faculty. Fellows are hired to a junior faculty position and develop greater independence in daily clinical practice during the course of the fellowship. Fellows participate in night and weekend call schedules, work on clinical research projects of interest and write at least one clinical research paper.
The current salary at the junior instructor level is $110,000 per year and benefits include health insurance, parking three weeks paid vacation. Paid attendance at a recognized national imaging meeting during the fellowship year is also supported.
