The Medical University of South Carolina has a one-year Cardiothoracic Imaging fellowship available beginning on July 1, 2018. This is a one-year non-ACGME accredited fellowship and Clinical Instructor faculty position.
Time will be spent 50/50 between cardiovascular and thoracic imaging. Clinical work will be performed in the MUSC Main Hospital and MUSC Ashley River Tower on-campus site. Fellows work closely with referring physicians so that appropriate studies are performed. Participation in resident and medical student teaching is also required.
Fellows are exposed to a setting of excellent teaching, outstanding research, and a collegial work environment. In addition to being active team members of the cardiac and thoracic reading rooms, fellows also participate in ongoing research projects under the supervision of the cardiothoracic faculty. The fellows are exposed to a well-rounded spectrum of pathology including pediatric and adult congenital heart disease and acquired heart disease. Fellows obtain hands-on training in 4D image post-processing of CTAs and MRIs, including pre and post-procedural imaging of novel cardiac devices such as TAVR and LVADs. The pulmonary radiology experience provides exposure to a high volume of lung cancer imaging, as well as low dose lung cancer screening and interstitial lung disease. The clinical teaching is complemented by interdisciplinary conferences.
The Cardiothoracic Radiology division consists of 5 faculty members certified by the American Board of Radiology. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art advanced imaging equipment including several dual source multi-detector CT scanners and 1.5T as well as 3T MRI scanners.
