Breast Imaging Fellowship

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.
