The cardiothoracic imaging section provides interpretation of radiographic, computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) of the thorax. These inpatient and outpatient services address, but are not limited to, the screening and focused analysis of the wide variety of diseases affecting the hearts and lungs.

Why Train at Wake Forest?

The caseload in cardiothoracic imaging presents a broad range of the diseases that affect the heart, lungs and mediastinum. More than 250 new cases of lung cancer are seen at our Medical Center yearly, and more than 12,000 chest CTs and over 74,000 chest radiographs are performed annually.

The fellowship is designed to enhance an individual's skills in cardiothoracic medicine and the techniques of imaging chest disease.
