Nuclear Cardiology Fellowship

Nuclear Cardiology Fellowship

The Nuclear Cardiology Fellowship Program provides training in all aspects of nuclear cardiology practice, including cardiac PET, stress performance and interpretation and image analysis and interpretation. This fellowship is a one-year non-ACGME training program with an optional second-year focusing on advanced training in PET. Currently, the laboratory has six SPECT cameras and two PET cameras and performs over 7,500 imaging procedures per year. The laboratory is located in the main campus at Massachusetts General Hospital and performs tests on both outpatients as well as patients admitted to the hospital.

In addition to providing clinical evaluations, the laboratory is involved in a multi-center trial involving the evaluation of a new tracer for myocardial autonomic function, quantitative physiologically oriented PET studies of the coronary circulation, as well as other clinical investigative protocols both multi-center (ex: new adenosine analog) and individual investigator initiated (ex: neural network analysis of myocardial perfusion images, PET studies of peripheral vascular disease and plaque inflammation).
