Breast Imaging Fellowship
We offer a one-year Breast Imaging Fellowship with in-depth exposure to all aspects of diagnostic breast imaging, including digital mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, contrast-enduced dual energy mammography, and breast tomosynthesis. Fellows may rotate to other major breast imaging centers in the Twin Cities metro area.
Fellows gain experience in many types of interventional procedures, including stereotactic-, US- and MRI-guided breast biopsies, US axillary lymph node biopsy, wire localizations, ductography, and nuclear medicine sentinel node injections.
Fellows should be willing to read widely and in-depth about all aspects of breast imaging and diagnosis. They should participate in quality assurance, accreditation and all other administrative aspects of a successful breast imaging practice. They should do these things in order to promote the habit of lifelong education, to prepare themselves as resources in their medical and lay community for all aspects of breast health above and beyond what increased practice experience can provide, and to be ready to assume leadership roles in their practice, medical community and lay community relative to breast health and as well as other community needs.
