The Body Imaging Fellowship is a year-long commitment with concentrations in CT, MR, and ultrasound. The primary emphasis is clinical and designed to be a well-balanced training program encompassing all of the basic and advanced clinical areas of adult abdominal and pelvic imaging. The fellow receives much "hands-on" experience at the workstation as well as through active procedure services with image-guided aspirations and biopsies. Graduated autonomy and responsibility granted during the course of the year and active involvement with the residents and with interdepartmental conferences all aid in building confidence and refinement of one's skills.
The fellow will become experienced in a broad range of adult pathology with OHSU as a level 1 trauma center, an active oncology center with the Knight Cancer Institute, and a transplant center specializing in renal, pancreas, and liver. The fellow will be actively involved in protocol refinement, especially in CT and MRI. The busy ultrasound laboratory offers proficiency in obstetrics, gynecology, small parts, abdominal, and vascular exams. OHSU has state-of-the-art equipment with 10 CT scanners, one of which is a 128-slice scanner and three of which have iDose (dose reduction) capability. There are six MRI scanners, two of which are 3 tesla and 1 of which is a 1.5 tesla large bore scanner capable of scanning patients up to 500 lbs. Five ultrasounds with state of the art grayscale and Doppler capabilities are also used.
OHSU is located in the prestigious west hills of Portland, Oregon. Endless outdoor recreational activities are easily accessible from the city. The ocean and mountains are less than 1-1/2 hours away. Metropolitan Portland has won many awards for city planning and offers the best of urban living without sacrificing the landscape.
Additionally, the Fellowship has received approval to expand to two positions. We are currently accepting applications for one additional fellowship position for the 2013-14 academic year.
