  • MR and CT enterography, CT for detection, staging and surveillance of malignancies including clinical trial metrics
  • Ultrasound HCC screening
  • US elastography and contrast enhanced ultrasound
  • Optional rotation could include FDG PET/CT interpretations

In addition to hands-on experience, fellow education will be supported by:

  • Formal lectures
  • Case conferences and journal club
  • The fellowship also offers opportunities to develop academically including faculty mentoring with opportunities for lectures, research and publications
Supervised by faculty, fellows will participate in several interdisciplinary conferences and tumor boards.

Procedures will be limited to thyroid US guided biopsies and limited GI/GU fluoroscopy unless the candidate desires a greater range of exposure to abdominal/pelvic interventions in which case some work with our interventional radiology section may be arranged.
