Body Imaging Fellowship
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.
The Body Imaging Fellowship at OHSU is a non-ACGME fellowship program. Candidates must be Board Certified or Board Eligible radiologists. Candidates must also be eligible for an unrestricted Oregon state medical license prior to beginning the fellowship. Candidates for Fellowship are selected through individual applications, not through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP).”
