Allegheny Health Network is offering a one year fellowship in cardiothoracic radiology. This advanced imaging fellowship provides comprehensive training in all aspects of cardiothoracic disease including chest CT, cardiac CT, cardiac MRI, chest xrays, and image-guided thoracic interventional procedures. Rotations will occur at the main Allegheny General Hospital campus. The fellow will be supervised and instructed by fellowship-trained chest and cardiac radiologists. The fellow will have additional opportunity for a rotation outside of cardiothoracic radiology or additional cardiac MRI training with cardiology.
Supervised duties will include image interpretation and performance of invasive procedures (chest biopsies, ablations, thoracentesis, chest tube insertions). Diagnostic imaging studies and reports will be reviewed by one of the attending staff. All invasive procedures will be performed under direct supervision of the attending staff. The fellow will participate in multidisciplinary cardiac and thoracic conferences on a regular basis with Cardiology, Cardiac Surgery, Pulmonary, Thoracic Surgery, and Oncology. Resident and medical student teaching is encouraged. Multiple research opportunities are available.
Allegheny Health Network is a large health care system based in Pittsburgh which encompasses seven hospitals and 17,000 employees. The cardiothoracic radiology division volumes include over 160,000 diagnostic exams including 10,000 thoracic CTs, 200 thoracic MRIs, 200 cardiac CTs, 100 cardiac MRIs, and 200 biopsies per year. CT technology includes a dual source-dual energy CT, PET-CT, and multiple 128 and 64 slice scanners. CT exams include high resolution chest CT, low dose chest CT, dual energy CT, gated and non-gated chest CTA, and cardiac CT. A total of 9 MRI magnets are used for clinical work at our various locations in both inpatient and outpatient settings. MR exams include Thoracic MRIMRA and cardiac MRI.
Call responsibilities average one weekend a month. Additional compensation is provided for call. Moonlighting opportunities are available to supplement income.
Applicants should be enrolled in an ACGME-accredited residency program, must be able to obtain an unrestricted license in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and should have passed the Core examination of the American Board of Radiology. Because this is a nontraditional fellowship, the fellow will be expected to spend no greater than 20% of his/her time functioning as a junior attending.
