Division of Abdominal Imaging
Members of the Division of Abdominal Imaging are nationally and internationally recognized experts in their fields. This division works in close collaboration with the Division of Cardiothorac Imaging, and the combination of thoracic and abdominal imagers allows for the highest quality performance and interpretation of a multitude of focused studies as well as a collaborative approach in the interpretation of oncologic patients.
The Division of Abdominal Imaging remains at the cutting edge, performing a variety of advanced MR, CT, and ultrasound tests including multiparametic prostate MR, fetal MR, MR enterography, MR defacography, and MR elastography. We work closely with multiple other services including urology, gastroenterology, surgery, transplant surgery, and oncology. We actively participate in over 20 tumor boards and case conferences where cases are discussed in depth with a multidisciplinary approach.
The division trains three body MRI imaging fellows and two breast/body fellows during the academic year. Daily case conferences and one-on-one resident education also occurs. There are many ongoing research projects, and fellows are encouraged to submit abstracts and papers for conferences and publication during their year of training. Those interested in applying can refer to the radiology fellowships.
The Division of Abdominal Imaging is engaged in diverse research projects that focus on contrast induced nephropathy, pancreatic oncological imaging, and fetal MR.
