PET/CT Imaging Fellowship (Arizona)
(Please review the overview description for all Advanced Radiology Fellowships at Mayo Clinic in Arizona)
As a leader in oncology treatment in the southwest, Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Ariz., offers the PET/CT Imaging Fellowship Program. Positron emission technology (PET) is a rapidly growing imaging tool used to evaluate oncology patients, often in combination with computed tomography (CT) imaging. The one-year training program focuses on PET, PET/CT and other aspects of cross-sectional imaging.
You can also choose to diversify your advanced radiology focus. What makes this program unique from other standard nuclear medicine fellowships is the opportunity to further your skills in other cross-sectional imaging techniques.
The one-year PET/CT Imaging Fellowship Program at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale offers:
- Extensive exposure and hands-on experience with a large group of patients exhibiting a wide range of disease processes in which PET, cross-sectional imaging and interventional techniques play important roles.
- Clinical tutelage by multiple fellowship-trained radiology consultants, many of whom have extensive academic experience and who are recognized experts in their fields.
- Exposure to state-of-the-art PET, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), CT, ultrasound and Picture Archive Communications System (PACS) equipment.
- Experience in a modern hospital facility that utilizes a filmless imaging department and an electronic medical record.
- Close cooperative interaction with outstanding medical and surgical colleagues.
- Outstanding clinical research opportunities.
While the curriculum does not lead to board certification in nuclear medicine, it does allow you to develop expertise in PET, PET/CT, and other cross-sectional imaging techniques, which are invaluable in any subsequent academic or private-practice diagnostic radiology practice.
The PET/CT Imaging Fellowship in Scottsdale is a new fellowship offering from the Department of Diagnostic Radiology. It is one of four curriculum tracks for the Advanced Radiology Fellowship Program, which began in 2000.
