Pediatric Radiology Fellowship
Our pediatric radiology fellowship program is the first and only pediatric radiology fellowship program in Arizona. The fellowship is based at Phoenix Children's Hospital, the only licensed freestanding children's hospital in Arizona. Phoenix Children's Hospital has begun occupancy of its new hospital tower including the new Radiology department which occupies 45,000 square foot of the first floor of the new building.
The hospital has an ACGME accreditation for a pediatric radiology fellowship which started in July 2010. There are three accredited positions with two additional non-accredited, sub-specialized pediatric radiology fellowships available in pediatric Interventional Radiology fellowship and pediatric Neuroradiology fellowship. The formal education program will consist of clinical rotations, didactic lectures, case based, and interdisciplinary conferences.
The Radiology department has grown to three times its size since 2007 and is currently performing approximately 100,000 studies each year. The number of studies is expected to exceed 120,000 in the next two years. The department performs all aspects of diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology. The body imaging section consists of seven faculty members with special interest in musculoskeletal, molecular, and cardiac imaging. The division of neuroradiology has three faculty members. Neuroradiology is growing rapidly in both volume and complexity and has a focus in advanced MR techniques and neuro PET/CT. The division of Interventional Radiology has three faculty members who perform all vascular and non-vascular procedures. Our faculty is one of the most experienced in North America. The volume is growing considerably, as is the complexity of procedures.
The pediatric radiology fellowship curriculum includes exposure to large clinical volume with a diverse mix of common and uncommon pediatric disease. There are daily one on one read outs at the PACS station, didactic lectures, radiology departmental and multidisciplinary conferences, case-based reviews, interesting case conference, and journal club. We provide hands-on teaching in ultrasound and fluoroscopy. A large portion of the training works on developing cross sectional body imaging skills. Additionally there are opportunities to teach medical students, residents, and fellows in and outside of the department. More information about the programs conference schedules and goal and objectives can be found below by using the links provided.
Phoenix Children's has established a Luminary site and Research agreements with Philips Medical Systems. All technology in the new department will therefore be Philips. Equipment/technology to be installed or currently in use within the new department includes:
- 3T MRI
- CT - Brilliance iCT 256 slice and Brilliance 64-slice
- NM - Brightview SPECT x 2
- RAD - Digital Diagnost DVM and Easy Diagnost Eleva DRF x4
- PET/CT - Gemini TF
In addition to the Main Hospital, the radiology department is currently servicing three satellite facilities with additional facilities planned in the near future. The department has also added a Center for Pediatric Interventional Radiology, the only one of its kind for children in the Southwest. The Center provides state-of-the art, minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to kids of all ages, including newborns.
All of our fellowship positions - three accredited pediatric radiology fellowship positions and two non-accredited sub specialized pediatric radiology fellowship positions - are available outside the match.
