The goal of the one-year Advanced Radiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, is to train highly specialized radiologists who are prepared to be experts in their field. The fellowship offers four established core tracks, each allowing some flexibility to gain additional experience in one or more additional areas of radiology:
- Abdominal Radiology MRI Track. This track covers all facets of abdominal, pelvic and vascular MRI.
- Breast Imaging Track. All areas of breast imaging, including screening and diagnostic 2-D and 3-D digital mammography, diagnostic ultrasound (US), MRI, molecular breast imaging (MBI) and contrast-enhanced digital mammography (CEDM) are incorporated in this track. Image-guided procedures include 2-D and 3-D stereotactic biopsy, US- and MRI-guided biopsy, radioactive seed localizations and sentinel lymph node injections.
- Musculoskeletal Imaging Track. All facets of musculoskeletal imaging and intervention are included.
- Combined Radiology Track. From year to year, we may have the ability to offer a combined radiology track, allowing you to choose two major areas of study. At least one major area is typically spent in one of the three core tracks (Abdominal Radiology MRI, Breast Imaging or Musculoskeletal Imaging). During your fellowship year, you spend 50 percent of your time in each area.
The Advanced Radiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona began in 2000. We anticipate that four trainees will complete this program annually.
