The Stanford Body Imaging Fellowship is a one-year clinical fellowship that will provide structured training and broad exposure to abdominal/body imaging. Stanford Hospital is a tertiary care Magnet Hospital with an excellent breadth of pathology drawing from a comprehensive cancer center, high volume transplantation center, a Trauma I emergency department, as well as community physicians. State of the art equipment include high field strength MR scanners (3T and 1.5 T), latest CT technology including ASIR, MBIR, dual energy, CT colonography, and perfusion CT technologies, and the latest US technologies including contrast-enhanced US and elastography. Fellows fully participate in all aspects of clinical services, with frequent contact with our referring physicians. Teaching duties of the fellows include weekly case conferences, interdisciplinary tumor boards, and interdisciplinary GI conferences. A separate didactic lecture series is provided for body fellows at the beginning of the year.
Rotations include inpatient CT (2 blocks), inpatient ultrasound (1 block), outpatient CT (3 blocks), outpatient ultrasound (1 block), body MRI (2 blocks), and elective (up to 3 blocks). During the elective blocks, fellows can choose 3 different rotations or may choose to concentrate in a specific field such as cardiovascular imaging, chest imaging, mammography/women’s imaging, informatics, musculoskeletal imaging, image guided biopsy, or PET-CT to name a few.
Currently we accept eleven body imaging fellows per year for the one-year fellowship. The body imaging fellowship is a non-accredited program.
Through the Stanford Cancer Imaging Training (SCIT) program, we are able to accept up to two fellows for a two-year training program. The mission of SCIT is to train the next generation of researchers in the development and clinical translation of advanced techniques for cancer imaging and its applications.
