This one-year program is designed to provide subspecialty experience in the diagnostic interpretation of a broad range of conditions relating to the gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary and pancreatic, genitourinary, and reproductive systems. Fellows work with state-of-the-art CT, MR and ultrasound platforms accessible throughout the medical center and associated facilities.
There is a particular emphasis on analyzing oncologic abnormalities given the close collaboration of the section with the multiple clinical services of the Comprehensive Cancer Center, but the Abdominal Radiology section also routinely deals with the diagnostic interpretation of complex post-surgical cases as well as emergency medicine and trauma cases.
Image-guided interventions including percutaneous biopsies and ablation procedures are a core component of the fellowship. Accessible target sides span the torso and include transplant allografts.
Integrated elective time (approximately 8 weeks) is used to facilitate research interests and supplemental training in other radiology subspecialties suiting the particular needs of a chosen career path.
