About the Fellowship
The Department of Radiology
at the University of Colorado Denver offers a one-year fellowship in Breast
Imaging. The Breast Imaging fellowship provides extensive experience in
full-field digital mammography, tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound, ultrasound-guided
core biopsy, stereotactic core biopsy, tomosynthesis guided core biopsy, needle
localization, radioactive seed localization, ductography, breast MRI and MRI
guided breast biopsy. More than 14,000 screening, diagnostic and interventional
breast imaging studies are performed each year. All studies are performed
on-site at the University of Colorado Breast Center, a comprehensive Breast
Center jointly operated by Radiology, Surgery and Medicine on the Anschutz
Health Sciences Campus. This multidisciplinary approach facilitates interaction
between the breast imagers, breast surgeons, and oncologists, all of whom
contribute to the fellow’s educational experience.
Presentation of cases at
weekly multidisciplinary breast conference is an integral part of the
fellowship experience. In addition, the fellow is required to
participate in research with allotted academic time. The fellow will maintain
general diagnostic radiology skills through required paid evening call and
weekend call. Lastly, rotations in breast pathology and breast surgery provide education
in related areas of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.
