The Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology at The Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center (RPCCC) has teamed with Merritt Hawkins/AMN Healthcare to recruit a Board-Certified, fellowship-trained Director of Breast Imaging. Comprehensive services include digital breast tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound, MRI, radioactive seed localizations, and image-guided core biopsy (stereotactic, ultrasound, and MRI). Full-time is preferred. Breast radiologists do not take overnight or weekend call.
Our Breast Imaging Center, located in the Scott Bieler Clinical Sciences Center, is a state-of-the-art facility staffed by six dedicated breast radiologists. The breast imaging team works collaboratively with breast surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists to provide multidisciplinary care to our patients as well as with RPCCC outreach programs to increase screening participation in our local community.
Roswell Park is an NCI-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center (one of only two in New York State) with deep ties to the Western NY Community. It is a University at Buffalo (UB) Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences affiliate, with academic appointments for staff. We are an ACR Breast Center of Excellence, and our Breast Program is accredited by the NAPBC. Current trainees include UB medical students, radiology residents, and breast surgical oncology fellows.
