Program Overview

The Children’s Hospital of Colorado Department of Radiology is full-service with:

  • ​Radiography, CT, PET/CT, MRI, Nuclear medicine, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, angiography and interventional radiology. 
  • Cross sectional imaging encompasses Neuro, Chest, Body, Musculoskeletal and Fetal imaging with subspecialty trained pediatric radiologists. 

Annually, approximately 100,000 exams at the main campus, and another 43,000 exams at satellite facilities are performed.

Be involved with consultations in many subspecialties!

  • Our single large reading room with all imaging subspecialties allows fellows to be involved with all consultations and interesting cases on a daily basis, formulating a good working relationship with referring physicians.
  • Fellows attend and lead daily Neonatal intensive care rounds reviewing all imaging on the most critically ill patients with subspecialty attending physician interaction. 
  • Fellows also attend the monthly multidisciplinary vascular malformation clinic.​

Superlative education is at the forefront for fellows. 

  • There is a daily Fellow Case of the Day series where each fellow is shown an unknown case covering MSK, Neuro, GI, GU, Chest and Fetal sections with protocol, imaging and interpretation pearls. 
  • Fellows attend a variety of multidisciplinary conferences including monthly Tumor Board (general, neuro and orthopedic oncology), Surgery, Urology, Pulmonary (general and interstitial lung disease), Neuroimaging, Gastrointestinal, Metabolic/Genetics, Stroke, Child Advocacy, Maternal Fetal medicine and ENT. 
  • There is a Fellow Core Curriculum lecture series weekly given by pediatric radiology faculty as well as a monthly journal club.
  • There is ample opportunity to teach residents and visiting students affiliated through the residency training program at the University of Colorado Denver Health Sciences Center.

Research opportunities abound with projects facilitated frequently amongst discussions generated in the reading room and at multidisciplinary conferences.

Fellows choose a faculty mentor and work on a research project (either novel or ongoing) with goal of presenting at the annual Society of Pediatric Radiology meeting and manuscript submission.

Fellows in the program receive a broad range of experience with an active clinical service and an academic emphasis. We are proud to offer an exciting, educational opportunity in pediatric imaging.
