In the Body MRI section, we interpret over 7,000 body MRI examinations each year. MRI studies are performed on 14 state-of-the-art 1.5T and 3T in house clinical scanners, one interventional scanner and one intraoperative scanner in the IMRIS suite. In addition, we interpret body MRI examination from 5 offsite 1.5T and 3T magnets. We offer extensive clinical and research experience in all aspects of body MRI:
- Abdomen: Hepatobiliary, Pancreatic, Renal/Adrenal, Retroperitoneal, Gastro-intestinal
- Musculoskeletal MRI
Interim Clinical Director MRI: Katarzyna J. Macura, MD, PhD, FACR
Body MRI Clinical Fellowship
The dedicated Body MRI fellowship is an intensive 12-month clinical fellowship in Body MRI including chest, cardiac, vascular, abdomen, hepatobiliary, pelvis, prostate and musculoskeletal MRI studies. In the course of the fellowship, the fellow will learn how to prescribe MRI protocols and will gain experience with new MRI techniques under the direct supervision of the program director and the MRI faculty. The body MRI fellows will achieve in depth understanding of the basic principles of MRI and protocol development and optimization, with a one-month hands-on rotation with expert MR technologists. Two dedicated MRI fellows are accepted each year.
The body MR fellows actively participate in the diagnosis and management of complex disease processes and augment their experience through participation in multi-disciplinary conferences. Weekly didactic lectures and monthly interesting case conferences are also available. Teaching opportunities include formal resident teaching assignments with supervision of residents rotating on body MRI. There are ample opportunities to participate in translational MRI research projects, including cardiac imaging, oncologic imaging, genomics and machine learning.
In addition to a competitive annual salary, fellows receive educational funds.
Candidates must be Board-Certified or Board-Qualified in Diagnostic Radiology and must be eligible to obtain a State of Maryland medical license. Along with your completed application, please include your CV, a personal statement and 3 letters of recommendation.
