Program Director: Dr. Janine Katzen
This fellowship offers advanced training in breast imaging in our state of the art, high volume Womens’ Imaging Center and outpatient David H Koch Center. Fellows develop expertise in all imaging modalities required to provide the complete spectrum of care. This includes screening, diagnostic imaging, image-guided interventions, and image-guided localizations. Fellows are exposed to high volumes of examinations and procedures. Annually we see over 40,000 mammograms with digital breast tomosynthesis, over 1000 MRIs, and over 7,000 biopsies and procedures are performed including MRI guided and I-125 seed localizations, with steadily increasing caseload. Fellows have the opportunity to not only collaborate but to lead multidisciplinary conferences with breast surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, genetic counselors, and pathologists.
The fellowship is designed with the potential to spend up to 40 weeks in breast imaging, with flexibility based on each fellow’s interest.
Education & Mentorship
Optimizing the educational experience of our fellows is our priority. Each fellow is paired with a faculty mentor to provide guidance during the year. Our breast imaging section is very active in research and interested fellows will have the opportunity to work closely with any faculty of their choosing on research, educational or QI projects.
