The Women's Imaging section of Diagnostic Radiology offers a full range of services for breast, gynecologic and obstetric Imaging. Breast imaging services include screening and diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and interventional procedures. The multidisciplinary breast center is located on the 9th floor of the Center for Health and Healing 2. Gynecologic imaging is performed in conjunction with the body imaging section and includes female pelvis imaging using ultrasound, fluoroscopy, CT, and MRI. In addition, pelvic procedures such as 3D sonohysterography and fluoroscopic hysterography are offered for the evaluation of the uterine cavity and fallopian tubes. Indication for these procedures include abnormal uterine bleeding, uterine anomalies, infertility, and fallopian tube evaluation after placement of nonsurgical permanent sterilization devices (Essure devices). Obstetrical imaging, including fetal MRI, and 3D ultrasound, is offered at the OHSU Perinatal Center, located on the fourth floor of the Physician's Pavilion.

The radiologists in the Women's Imaging section are board certified subspecialists dedicated to women's health. We are actively involved in research and teaching within OHSU, nationally and internationally. Our section works closely with clinicians in many departments including obstetrics and gynecology, family practice, midwifery, surgery, and oncology. Most importantly, we interact closely with our patients and guide them through their imaging and procedures with care and attention.

This fellowship will include training in breast, gynecologic, and obstetrical imaging. Half of the fellow’s time will be spent in breast imaging and the other half split between gynecologic imaging and obstetrical imaging. The fellow will be expected to participate in an ongoing research or educational project. In addition, the fellow will help with the preparation of monthly perinatal and weekly breast conferences and be involved in the teaching of our radiology residents.
The fellow will be involved with all aspects of breast imaging and procedures including including mammography, ultrasound, breast MRI, ductography, breast biopsy, and preoperative localizations. Gynecologic training includes MR interpretation, hands on endovaginal scanning and learning how to catheterize the uterus for fluoroscopic and sonographic evaluation of the endometrium and fallopian tubes. Obstetrical imaging training includes performing and interpreting high risk OB ultrasound in our perinatal center, run in conjunction with the obstetrics department, and exposure to fetal MR.
The breast center is located in the Center for Health and Healing amidst the oncology clinics, accessible by vehicle or aerial Tram from OHSU. We have 4 Hologic mammogram units, an upright Affirm biopsy unit and 2 dedicated breast ultrasound rooms. A screening reading room and diagnostic reading room include Hologic, Agfa, and Dynacad reading stations.
The Perinatal Center and outpatient ultrasound clinic is in the Physician’s Pavilion at OHSU and houses 9 ultrasound machines (with 3D capabilities). Six of these machines are used exclusively for obstetric imaging. The department also has two 3T magnets and two 1.5 T magnets.
OHSU is located in the 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.
Our program is filled through 2019/2020 and we will be participating in the NRMP in Spring of 2019 to fill the 2020/2021 position. We are not currently accepting applications at this time.
