Body Imaging Fellowship Applicants

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR 2020-2021 BODY IMAGING FELLOWSHIP

About the Program

The University of Kansas offers a one-year fellowship in body imaging with in-depth experience and high volume advanced MRI and CT techniques. The fellowship offers additional extensive elective training to be tailored to the fellow's interests in a multitude of radiologic specialties, including but not limited to cardiothoracic imaging with cardiac certification, nuclear medicine, musculoskeletal imaging, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, and interventional radiology.

The body imaging fellowship offers high-volume exposure to a large breadth of patients and pathology. Fellows will have training in advanced MRI, including prostate MRI, rectal MRI, dynamic pelvic floor MRI, and MR enterography. Fellows will have extensive CT experience, including CT colonography. Fellows will be exposed to the latest ultrasound technologies, including elastography and peripheral vascular disease.

Fellows participate in all aspects of clinical service, including frequent discussion with referring physicians and participation in weekly interdisciplinary tumor boards. Fellows will have regular teaching opportunities involving both residents and medical students. Research support is available, and attendance to one radiology conference will be covered by the department.

We anticipate that one trainee will complete this program annually. Call responsibilities are minimal.
