Breast Imaging Fellowship

Our screening and diagnostic volume, coupled with a wide breadth of pathology and abundant procedures, provides a robust educational experience. The educational program is directed by five fellowship-trained breast imaging faculty, along with additional mammography attending radiologists with many years of experience.

Breast Imaging

Our Breast Imaging departments provide state-of-the-art breast imaging, including:

  • Multiple full-field mammography digital (FFDM) units with tomosynthesis
  • Diagnostic breast ultrasound
  • Breast interventional suites for vacuum-assisted stereotactic core biopsies on upright units (some with 3D biopsy capability)
  • Outpatient surgical suites for breast surgical procedures.

Fellow education at all sites will be augmented by:

  • Formal lectures
  • Review of landmark mammography papers,
  • Teaching at PACS work stations
  • Hands-on ultrasound scanning
  • Conferences.
The breast imaging fellow, supervised by faculty, will participate in several interdisciplinary and radiology conferences including breast tumor board.

Additional breast procedures include:

  • Ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration and core biopsies
  • Galactography
  • Wire as well as our new SAVI SCOUT localization
  • 3T Breast MRI with MRI-guided core biopsy capability equipped with MRI computer-aided detection.
  • University of New Mexico Hospital,
  • UNM Outpatient Surgery and Imaging Service (OSIS)
  • Sandoval Regional Medical Center in Rio Rancho (SRMC)
