From the program director

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Body Imaging Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida!

Our division consists of 21 board-certified radiologists subspecialized in abdominal imaging with recognized leaders in GI, hepatobiliary, GU, and oncologic imaging. 

We have a close-knit group of faculty and a collegial work environment. We take pride in providing excellent care to our patients and taking care of our trainees. 

Mayo Clinic is a specialty clinic focused on the care of complex and rare diseases. Our radiologists practice as an integral part of the health care team. 

In the words of Dr. W.W. Mayo, “No one is big enough to be independent of others.” The values set forth by the founders of Mayo Clinic are as important today as when they were spoken over 150 years ago. 

We continue to embody these values through our unmatched multidisciplinary focus on our patients.

Exam volumes

Approximate body imaging examination volumes over the past year include:

  • 14,000 body magnetic resonance scans
  • 37,000 ultrasound examinations
  • 27,000 abdomen and pelvis CT scans

This large number of cases, integrated with ongoing research and education, results in wide-ranging expertise in the imaging and treatment of disease.

Equipment

The Department of Radiology at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida has exceptional diagnostic resources. State-of-the art equipment includes:

  • Nine Siemens 3T MRI units, four Siemens 1.5T MRI units, and one Siemens 7T unit
  • One GE 3T PET/MR unit
  • 16 Logiq E10 ultrasound units including contrast, elastography, and UGAP capabilities
  • Six Siemens CT scanners, including dual energy and PET/CT
  • One Photon counting CT to start clinical use in late 2022

A Mayo-wide picture archiving and communication system integrated with the electronic medical record allows for efficient communication and informed diagnosis.
