The women’s imaging fellowship consists of six months of training in breast imaging and six months of training in ultrasound on an alternating basis between the two services throughout the year.
The six months of the breast imaging focus consist of comprehensive training in all modalities of the breast imaging subspecialty, including digital 2D and 3D tomosynthesis mammography, breast sonography, breast magnetic resonance imaging, and in all image-guided breast procedures, including aspirations, biopsies, preoperative needle localizations (including new techniques such as radiofrequency identification), and ductography.
Fellows receive educational lectures and participate in clinical conferences including radiology pathology correlation, tumor board, and multidisciplinary conference, with additional learning, teaching, and research opportunities.
The training is enriched by exposure to diverse patient populations at both UCLA inpatient and outpatient sites, as well as at a county hospital facility, Olive View-UCLA Medical Center.
The six months of the women’s imaging focus consist of inpatient and outpatient ultrasound rotations split equally at Ronald Reagan-UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center, and Olive View-UCLA Medical Center.
