Abdominal Imaging


The Division of Abdominal Imaging covers all aspects of abdominal imaging. Our areas of expertise include abdominal and pelvic CT scanning, including an active CT colonography program, abdominal MRI, and advanced ultrasound techniques. Our state-of-the-art equipment includes MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), CT (computed tomography) including dual energy CT, digital fluoroscopy, positron emission tomography/CT (PET/CT) and ultrasound.

We have a dynamic group of nationally and internationally renowned faculty with experts in every area of abdominal imaging including, but not limited to, hepatobiliary/pancreas, liver, GI, GU, prostate, female pelvis, MR, CT, interventional, and ultrasound. The breadth of experience among the faculty is reflected in the wide range of academic pursuits enjoyed by the Division. The Abdominal Imaging faculty are actively involved in the research of disorders of the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts, as well as CT, MRI, and interventional radiology techniques.

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality care to patients, combining compassion and expertise with proven technical advances. Our patient-centered approach to care and our concern for safety drives every clinical decision we make. The Division of Abdominal Imaging has close ties to an excellent and busy group of surgeons as well as members of each of the Divisions within the Department of Medicine. We are fortunate to be able to bring a coordinated multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and treatment of patients.

The goal of the faculty of the Abdominal Imaging Division is to provide an environment for our Fellows which is conducive to both clinical and academic excellence. At the completion of the 12 month fellowship, Fellows will be well positioned to enter a sub-specialized private practice or become faculty in an academic department.

The Division covers all aspects of abdominal imaging from the diaphragm to the pubic symphysis. Our Division covers CT (including 3D CT), CT/PET, MR (including vascular MR), ultrasound (including vascular ultrasound), and per-cutaneous interventional procedures (biopsy and drainage). In addition, Fellows will receive some exposure to OB ultrasound and some traditional GI and GU radiology. There are dedicated one month rotations throughout the year. There is an emphasis toward CT (reflecting the clinical volume) but each Fellow will receive dedicated rotations in MR and ultrasound.

Attention Non-US Citizens: The United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) is required for entrance in the Abdominal Imaging Fellowship Program.
