Fellowship

The Breast Imaging fellowship is a 12-month program designed to give the motivated candidate a broad experience in both clinical and academic breast imaging. The fellow will gain experience in all facets of breast imaging including screening and diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound and breast MRI. In addition, the fellow will become skilled in performing stereotactic, ultrasound and MRI-guided percutaneous needle procedures including cyst aspirations, large core needle biopsies, and radioactive I-125 seed and wire-localizations.

Available equipment is truly state-of-the-art including digital mammography/ tomosynthesis, high-end ultrasound systems and both 1.5T and 3T clinical MRI units. The breast imaging division is part of a large multidisciplinary breast program where radiologists work closely with the breast surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists and pathologists to optimize patient care.

In addition to clinical responsibilities fellows are encouraged to become involved in clinical research studies and teaching. Current research studies involve digital breast tomosynthesis, MRI, breast PET imaging, and contrast mammography. Protected time is available to pursue research for the motivated candidate.
