The program consists of a 12-month clinical fellowship under the auspices of the Cardiac Imaging Section of the Department of Radiology, with rotations occurring through the Thoracic Imaging Section of the Department of Radiology and the Division of Cardiology at NYU School of Medicine. The curriculum comprises interpretation of clinical cardiovascular and cardiothoracic examinations, didactic teaching sessions, presentation of cases at departmental conferences, and involvement in clinical and basic science research. The Cardiac Imaging Section provides clinical cardiovascular imaging services for both outpatient and inpatient services at the NYU Langone Medical Center including Tisch Hospital, and at the Bellevue Hospital Center.
The curriculum is designed to allow the advanced cardiovascular imaging fellow to learn the indications for, the techniques of, and the practical application and interpretation of state-of-the-art cardiovascular and cardiothoracic imaging, with emphasis on CT and MR. In particular the trainee will gain knowledge of CT and MR physics, scanning principles related to cardiovascular and cardiothoracic imaging protocols, basic ECG interpretation skills as applicable to imaging protocols, contrast agents used for safe and optimal imaging, interpretative skills for reading clinical cardiovascular and cardiothoracic imaging studies, including data post-processing tools for analysis, an in-depth knowledge of normal and pathologic cardiovascular and cardiothoracic anatomy, and the physiology of acquired and congenital heart disease, cardiothoracic diseases, and vascular diseases of the aorta. In addition, the fellow will receive an overview of information obtained with other cardiovascular imaging technologies including echocardiography, nuclear cardiology and invasive x-ray angiography. The collaborative interaction with both Radiology and Cardiology faculty is an important feature of the program; it combines the strengths of faculty with different training backgrounds to provide a balanced perspective on the utilization and interpretation of advanced cardiovascular imaging techniques in the diagnosis and management of patients presenting for evaluation of cardiovascular diseases. In addition to gaining advanced cardiovascular knowledge, the fellowship integrates training in advanced thoracic imaging, including education in advanced chest CT, including high-resolution CT, and MRI imaging techniques, radiographic interpretation, and research. The fellow will gain knowledge and expertise in identifying thoracic diseases encountered in clinical practice when interpreting cardiac imaging examinations, including infections, lung nodules, cancer, and interstitial lung disease. The training in thoracic imaging entails a collaborative environment with clinicians involved in multidisciplinary care of thoracic disease so that the understanding of the diagnosis and management of chest disease is gained.
