Abdominal Imaging Fellowship

The Abdominal Imaging Fellowship program at the University of Colorado offers advanced training in body computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound to help develop a high level of expertise in abdominal imaging.

The Abdominal Imaging Fellowship provides exposure to high volume of inpatient, outpatient and emergency US, CT and MRI exams. The wide spectrum of imaging includes general abdominal US, OB-GYN US, arterial and venous vascular Doppler, scrotal US, pre and post-transplant (liver, renal and pancreas) imaging, CT and MRI for cancer staging and monitoring. MR imaging are performed on 1.5 T and 3T scanner. MR exams include liver, pancreas, MRCP, renal, adrenal, MRA, appendix, female pelvis, placental anomaly, and endo-rectal 3T prostate MRI.  US guided FNA biopsy of thyroid nodule and neck lump-nodes are also performed by the Abdominal Imaging group.  Since the program focus is on abdominal imaging, GI and GU fluoroscopy is included in the fellowship program. 

Participation in multidisciplinary conferences (mixed GI tumor board, second-opinion urology oncology, gynecology-pathology, liver transplant, liver tumor, pancreas, thyroid-parathyroid) is an integral part of fellowship training.  Fellows are expected to participate in resident and medical student education. There are opportunities to participate in scholarship projects that may result in presentation and scientific publication.


  • The program is non-ACGME and does not participate in the National Resident Matching Program.

  • Each fellow must have a Colorado State Medical License prior to beginning the fellowship.
