Cross-Sectional Body Imaging Fellowship

Director: Atif Zaheer, M.D.

Applications for the Cross-Sectional Imaging Fellowships beginning July 1, 2022 are now closed. Applications for Cross Sectional Imaging Fellowships beginning July 1, 2023 will be accepted as of August 1, 2021. Interviews will begin November 1, 2021. Interviews will conclude on March 31, 2022 or once all available positions have been filled.

The radiology department’s diagnostic division has three main locations, all residing at the East Baltimore and the Johns Hopkins Bayview campuses: an inpatient service at the Johns Hopkins Hospital -- Sheikh Zayed Tower, an outpatient service, and a separate oncology department.

The primary mission of the fellowship is to provide superior clinical training in advanced CT, ultrasound and MR imaging of the body. This mission is accomplished by the dedication of faculty members who are deeply committed to resident and fellow education.

The fellowships offer an unparalleled educational and clinical experience, thanks to the volume, variety and breadth of pathology seen every day. As a fellow, you will work side by side with nationally and internationally acclaimed academic radiologists, and you will interact with world-renowned clinicians.

Cross-sectional fellows will be trained in the comprehensive use and interpretation of the latest imaging techniques, including 3-D imaging, and will learn protocol design and development. Fellows will also learn indications and will become proficient in a wide variety of percutaneous interventional procedures.

The fellowship is divided into 13 blocks of four weeks each: body CT (four blocks), ultrasound (two blocks), body MR (four blocks), cardiothoracic service (one block), biopsy service (one block) and four electives (one block). The elective options are: MRI, Biopsy, Cardiothoracic, Oncologic Imaging & Multidisciplinary Conferences.

In addition, one day per week of general diagnostic radiology, plain film and fluoroscopy is built into the rotations

Candidates MUST be board eligible or certified in diagnostic radiology by the American Board of Radiology and hold or be eligible for a permanent medical license in Maryland.
