Womens Imaging Rotations and Electives
The Fellowship consists of 13 four-week blocks with rotations and an elective performed at the Henry Ford Hospital Main Campus, New Center One, Fairlane and West Bloomfield facilities. Fellows are always under the direct supervision of the Attending Staff while working within the Divisions. On all rotations, the Fellows are responsible for maintaining protocol, interpretation and dictation of the examinations performed in each area.
The curriculum is as follows:
- Breast Imaging - 6 rotations
- Body Imaging - 5 rotations
- OB Ultrasound - 1 rotation
- Elective - 1 rotation
The 5 rotations in Body Imaging can be individualized based on the preferences of the Fellows as to the amount of exposure in each of the modalities of body MRI, CT and U/S. Body MRI gives the Fellow a broad exposure to thoracic, abdominal and pelvic MRI. Body CT consists of diagnostic and therapeutic rotations. Fellows will learn diagnostic imaging of the abdomen and pelvis utilizing a broad array of multi-slice CT scanners. Fellows will also participate in the Body Interventional service which performs a wide array of biopsies and drainages utilizing both CT and ultrasound techniques.
Ultrasound includes abdominal, gynecologic, vascular and obstetric applications. Ultrasound guided procedures will be performed in the body interventional portion of the CT rotation.
An elective may be chosen in any area within the Department of Radiology. In Addition to clinical rotations, additional elements of the Fellowship include participation in Tumor Boards, Radiology department teaching conferences and optional research projects within the Breast and Abdominal Imaging Divisions.
