The University of Arizona, Department of Medical Imaging is searching for a Radiologist to apply for a one year, ACGME accredited, Abdominal Radiology Fellowship beginning in July 2020.
Experience will include extensive training in each of these key areas: MRI of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis; MRI Physics; CT of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis; fluoroscopy; ultrasound; ultrasound guided procedures. The fellow will receive cross-sectional MR imaging of the body including: MRI of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis; MRA of the chest, abdomen, pelvis, lower extremities, and upper extremities; dynamic imaging to assess for pelvic floor instability; dynamic chest imaging to evaluate for central outlet syndrome; dynamic imaging to evaluate pulmonary biomechanics and to assess for chronic interstitial lung disease. Our Body MRI practice is well established with close to 10000 exams performed each year. With plans to install new scanners in the next two academic years, we anticipate that this practice will continue to grow along with our growing capacity to train radiologists in advanced Body MRI techniques.
Additionally, the fellow will learn new skills in ultrasound imaging including: Elastography, lymph node mapping, imaging following repair of pelvic floor instability, transcranial Doppler to evaluate for vasospasm. Fellows will also be actively involved with the performance and the interpretation of CT colonography.
Our department has an impressive array of imaging equipment including 8 MRI scanners, 9 Ultrasound units, 6 CT units including one dual source scanner, and 2 PET/CT scanners.
Throughout the year, the fellow will have extensive interaction with other medical services within the hospital and will be actively involved in several weekly and bimonthly multidisciplinary conferences including Hepatobiliary, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Vascular Surgery, Urology, Gynecology, Colorectal, and Radiology-Pathology.
The fellows will be actively engaged in basic medical science, translational, and clinical research. Trainees are expected to present at a national or international conference and to publish in a peer reviewed journal.
Our hospital, Banner – University Medical Center BUMC) is a Level 1 Trauma center with a hospital bed capacity of 487 and more than 320,000 diagnostic radiology cases and 48,000 abdominal imaging exams annually.
