The primary educational method is direct participation in clinical work performed by our department in the focus areas of Pulmonary and Cardiac imaging. The trainee will be exposed to a volume and variety of cases to gain familiarity with the cardiac and thoracic diseases. The Cardiopulomary Imaging section benefits from strong collaboration with pulmonary, cardiothoracic surgery, surgical oncology, trauma surgery and cardiology with an opportunity to engage in various clinical teams, multi-disciplinary conferences and collaborative projects.
Fellows will receive classical training in chest radiography and chest CT interpretation. University of Cincinnati is home to experts on interstitial lung disease, pulmonary hypertension and cancer treatment. There is in addition a robust lung cancer-screening program. These various expertise are reflected in diversity and volume of imaging exams.
University of Cincinnati has the area's one-of-a-kind collaborative Cardiac CT and MRI program between Radiology and Cardiology. The fellows will spend one day a week in cardiac imaging where they will be expected to protocol cardiac imaging studies, attend imaging and participate in exam post-processing before read out. If interested, training in cardiac imaging may be in a dedicated 3-month block. Fellows will receive Level II certification in cardiovascular CT and MRI, by participating in required number of imaging exams.
