University of Wisconson Radiology
Abdominal Imaging and Intervention
The Abdominal Imaging and Intervention Section is composed of subspecialized clinical faculty physicians and research scientists. The clinical faculty are experts in the use of CT, ultrasound, MRI, plain radiographs, and fluoroscopy for diagnosis and intervention in the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. We are actively involved in advancing the research mission of the University of Wisconsin, with extensive grant funding and independent research laboratories in tumor ablation and diapeutic cancer agents.
Abdominal Imaging Fellowship
The goal of our program is to educate the next generation of leaders in abdominal radiology. By the time you leave Wisconsin, we want you to have an in-depth understanding of diseases of the abdomen, pelvis, and chest, and be an outstanding proceduralist. Our fellows easily transition into private or academic practices, and they are often chosen as leaders within their group. We accomplish these goals through a system of increasing independence where fellows take on increased responsibility throughout the course of the academic year. By the end of the program, fellows are functioning in a similar capacity as junior faculty including performing independent reading and procedures, alongside resident teaching and supervision.
The Department of Radiology’s goal is to provide a well-rounded background in the radiological sciences to residents, medical and graduate students. While individual training programs are conducted by separate sections (diagnosis, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, physics and radiobiology), integrated didactic and practical work is offered to afford satisfactory development and correlation of knowledge.
There are eight residents per year in the radiology residency program. Applications for our residency program are accepted through ERAS, which can be reached at http://www.aamc.org/eras.
