Nuclear Medicine Residency Program Director: Yuliya Jhanwar, MD
Our three-year ACGME-accredited Nuclear Medicine Residency Program (ACGME Number: 2003511052) provides specialized training in both diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine. As part of our academic mission, we are proud to provide training to both diagnostic radiology fellows and nuclear medicine residents. Training in the core competencies of image interpretation, radiotherapy procedures, and molecular imaging research is provided by dedicated Nuclear Medicine / Radiology faculty. Our in-house radiopharmacy and on-site cyclotron capabilities permit us to provide exposure to new radiopharmaceutical and radioisotope therapies, which is increasingly a part of personalized patient management.
The Nuclear Medicine facilities at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell have recently undergone renovations resulting in a spacious, quiet, and bright environment in keeping with our state-of-the-art equipment, which includes:
- 2 dual-head SPECT cameras – GE Infinia
- 2 dual headed SPECT/CT cameras with Hawkeye – GE Infinia
- Single-head SPECT camera - Millenium Square
- Captus 3000 Thyroid Uptake System
- Dilon 6800 dedicated breast imaging gamma camera
- PET/CT scanner - GE Discovery LS
- PET/CT scanner – Siemens mCT 64 slice time-of-flight Installation of a PET-MR scanner planned for 2014,
Further strength in research and clinical applications in PET/CT is provided by the Citigroup Biomedical Imaging Center (CBIC), a medical college core facility. CBIC has one Siemens mCT 64 time-of-flight scanner, in addition to two 3.0T MRI scanners, a 7.0T small bore MRI scanner, several small animal scanners, a cyclotron, and a well-endowed radiochemistry facility.
