This one year fellowship includes six months in the Betty Lou Ourisman Breast Center at the Lombardi Cancer Center. During this time fellows receive training in diagnostic and screening mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and breast interventions, including breast MR interventions. Fellows will also spend focused time with pathology and breast surgeons.

The remainder of the year is spent in the abdominal imaging section and includes rotations on body MR, ultrasound, OB Ultrasound, CT and PET/CT. Fellows will receive training in body MR, ultrasound, CT, PET/CT, hysterosalpingography, sono-hysterography and ultrasound guided pelvic interventions.

Aside from the clinical experience, fellows will be expected to attend and participate in regularly scheduled radiology department and multidisciplinary conferences and teaching throughout the year.

Although not required, fellows are strongly encouraged to be involved with either new or ongoing research projects within either the breast or abdominal imaging section.
