Body Imaging Fellowship Curriculum | Loyola Medicine

Body Imaging Fellowship Curriculum

The Fellowship involves training in multi-modality imaging of the Chest, Abdomen, Pelvis and Vascular system with predominant emphasis on MR. Rotations are 4 week long and based on modalities to include MR, CT and US. The MR experience includes diffusion weighted imaging, prostate MR, transplant work up, pre- and post-workup of targeted hepatocellular CA therapy, MR enterography, dynamic pelvic floor imaging and Gynecologic oncology. The CT experience includes CT colonography, lung screening in high risk population, CT Angiograms and Oncologic imaging. Ultrasound includes routine abdominal and pelvic, thyroid, testes, early obstetrics, thyroid biopsies, vascular/transplant applications and elastography.

Fellows learn through daily case studies with one on one teaching with faculty, didactic lectures, multi-disciplinary conferences (Liver, GI, GU, Prostate, Thoracic, Lung nodule).  They are based at Loyola’s Maywood, Illinois campus although we also image at several outpatient imaging centers and satellite locations.

Fellows also have dedicated Elective Rotations (2 blocks), which are tailored to individual needs, including, but not limited to Musculoskeletal, Neuroradiology, Breast, IR, PET/CT and Cardiac Imaging. Fellows routinely participate in Multidisciplinary conferences, Morbidity and mortality conference, journal clubs, resident and medical student education and complete a Quality Improvement project. Opportunities for fellows’ involvement in Research and Scholarly activities are available.
