Job Summary The Department of Radiology has an opening for a full-time faculty member in the Breast Imaging Section. This is a terrific opportunity to join a highly progressive department and institution, on a continually expanding medical campus, in one of the best places to live in the United States.
The Breast Section is integrated in the multidisciplinary Diane O’Connor Thompson Breast Center, which is part of an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center. The Breast Center provides consultation services and specialized breast cancer care for a large portion of Colorado and the surrounding states, which means second-opinion breast imaging consultation is a significant portion of our practice. There are multiple weekly multidisciplinary breast cancer conferences for which support is provided by our service. Furthermore, consultations with breast center patient care providers commonly occur during the clinical work day.
All typical breast imaging equipment is available, including digital mammography with tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound, and MRI. In addition to prone stereotactic biopsy equipment, there is also add-on tomosynthesis-guided biopsy capability. Pre-operative wire and radioactive seed localization procedures are also performed.
As part of the teaching mission of the medical school, breast imaging faculty interact with and instruct medical students, diagnostic radiology residents, and a breast imaging fellow within the section.
Both the Breast Section and the Department of Radiology have been recognized as an ACR Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence. We are the only Radiology department in the state of Colorado to receive this prestigious honor.
Duties include interpreting screening and diagnostic mammograms, breast MRI examinations, performance and interpretation of breast sonograms, and performance of all breast imaging-guided breast procedures (mammographically, stereotactically, ultrasound- and MRI-guided needle biopsies; wire and radioactive seed localizations; and ductography). Breast imaging fellow, diagnostic radiology resident, and medical student education in both outpatient and inpatient settings are integral components of the position.
Medical Degree or equivalent, Colorado Medical License, ABR Certification, Fellowship Training.
