Breast Imaging Fellowship

This fellowship consists of 32 weeks of breast imaging, 10 weeks of body CT, 4 weeks of ultrasound, and 6 weeks of elective

The hospital sees 3000 new breast cancers per year and performs 60000 breast imaging studies annually, including 2000 radioactive I-125 seed localization  (as well as needle localization), 800 stereotactic biopsies, 4700 breast MRIs, 400 MR-guided biopsies, 10000 breast sonograms, and 1000 sonographically-guided breast biopsies/aspirations. The fellow is actively involved in the interpretation of examinations, performance of procedures, and consultation with referring physicians.

This fellowship also provides extensive clinical experience in body CT and ultrasound. The fellow actively participates in the performance and interpretation of studies, as well as in consultations with clinical staff.

Our state-of-the-art equipment includes fourteen digital mammography units, fourteen 1.5-T and 3-T MRI scanners, a dedicated breast MR biopsy table, one positron emission mammography unit, ten PET/CT scanners, two SPECT-CT scanners, twelve CT scanners (16- and 64-slice and dual-energy), and twelve ultrasound units. Fellows attend and participate in various multidisciplinary clinical conferences. They are also required to participate with the faculty in clinical research projects.

On-call responsibilities at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center are shared by radiology residents and fellows (in parallel). Fellows are on call about once every 17 days.
