Abdominal Imaging

Overview

The Division of Abdominal Imaging covers all aspects of abdominal imaging from the diaphragm to the pubic symphysis, including:

  • CT (including 3D CT)
  • CT/PET
  • MR (including hepatobiliary, prostate and vascular MR)
  • Ultrasound (including vascular and OB ultrasound)
  • Percutaneous interventional procedures (biopsy and drainage)
  • Traditional GI and GU Radiology

The Division of Abdominal Imaging has close ties to an excellent and busy group of urologic and general surgeons. In addition, we have close ties to each of the Divisions within the Department of Medicine. There is a particularly close collaboration with the Division of Gastroenterology, with an emphasis on hepatobiliary and pancreatic imaging.

We have a stable group of faculty with top notch expertise in every area of abdominal imaging including, but not limited to, hepatobiliary/pancreas, liver, GI, GU, female pelvis, MR, CT, interventional, and ultrasound.

Fellowship

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.
