Clinical Fellowship in Abdominal Imaging and Intervention

We are accepting applications for our 2019-20 Fellowship Program.

Six ACGME-accredited fellowship positions are available each year. This fellowship offers a comprehensive experience of both diagnostic and interventional rotations that are designed to maximize fellows’ involvement in MRI and cross sectional interventional radiology procedures. The MRI rotation includes sophisticated 3T MRI applications in the abdomen and pelvis including endorectal coil imaging, secretin MRCP, MR Enterography, and MR Urography. The fellows gain experience in advanced CT techniques such as CT Urography, CT Colonography, and CT Enterography. There is hands-on US training in diseases throughout the body including OB/GYN. PET/CT is a part of the program; training in MRA and CTA are offered also. Fellows will master percutaneous interventions and learn state-of-the art percutaneous tumor ablation techniques such as RF ablation, microwave, cryoablation, and in selected cases focus ultrasound ablation. Fellows will work in an innovative surgical and interventional set of suites, called AMIGO (Advanced Multimodality Image Guided Operating) Suite, which is a clinical translational test bed of the National Center for Image-Guided Therapy. These suites include real-time anatomical imaging modalities like X-ray and US combined with cross sectional digital imaging systems such as CT, MRI, and PET.

The fellowship program provides an extensive array of educational lectures specifically designed for fellows. Fellows are granted one research day per week. One month of elective time is offered. Fellowship duration is nominally 1 year; 2-year fellowships are also offered.
