Breast Imaging Fellowship
Mount Sinai Medical Center offers a one year fellowship in breast imaging for residency-trained, board certified or board eligible radiologists. The fellowship experience takes place at the Breast Center, located in Mount Sinai’s Comprehensive Cancer Center, an NCI designated Community Clinical Oncology Program, adjacent to the main campus of the hospital.
The breast imaging fellow participates in all aspects of breast imaging, including interpretation of screening and diagnostic digital mammography and 3D/Tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound and breast MRI. In addition, under the supervision of the attending radiologists, the breast imaging fellow performs interventional procedures in the Breast Center, including ultrasound-guided cyst aspirations, fine needle aspirations and core biopsies, stereotactic core biopsies, MRI-guided core biopsies, pre-operative needle localizations, sentinel node injections and galactograms.
The breast imaging fellow participates in and prepares presentations for multi-disciplinary conferences, including the weekly Breast conference (attended by all Breast Cancer related specialties) and the bi-weekly breast radiology/pathology conference.
Teaching is an important component of the fellowship, as Mount Sinai radiology residents rotate thorough the department on a regular basis. In addition, the fellowship affords the opportunity to participate in clinical research, which is strongly emphasized as a component of the Mount Sinai Department of Radiology.
We are now participating in the Society of Breast Imaging Match. Please refer to the SBI website (sbi-online.org) to get up to date match details.
