The computed body tomography visiting fellowship offers close contact with dedicated CT radiologists. The majority of this fellowship consists of participation in the reading of body CT images. Fellows may work with technologists on workstations and multi slice scanners (with prior arrangement) and also participate in weekly conferences/lectures.
The objective of this program is to support development of an understanding of the computed tomographic sectional diagnosis of the mediastinum, chest, abdominal organs, retroperitoneum and pelvic structures. The visiting fellow will also have the opportunity to develop confidence in the selection of appropriate computed tomographic protocols for specific clinical problems. This fellowship is offered in one-week blocks. Subspecialty concentrations available include chest, abdominal and vascular. The visiting fellowship experience can be tailored to individual needs. Equipment: Multidetector CTs from several manufacturers with 256, 64 and 16 detectors are used daily in the division. CT fluoroscopy is also used for interventions. Workstations from multiple manufacturers as well as standalone workstations are available for review.
