About Ohio State’s Thoracic Imaging Fellowship
The Thoracic imaging Fellowship Program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is committed to providing a balanced educational experience to fellows in every aspect of chest and thoracic imaging. Our fellows thrive with opportunities for involvement in patient care, mentoring residents and medical students, and continued academic pursuits in research. We provide service to all affiliated hospitals except for Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Our parent institution is the University Hospital, the James Cancer Hospital, and OSU East, Fayetteville Memorial Hospital, Hocking Valley Hospital, while also providing ambulatory outpatient care to Martha Morehouse, OSU East and Lewis Center, Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center (SSCBC), and Carepoint Gahanna sites.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 academic years!
Upon completion of the program, fellows will have:
- Advanced knowledge in imaging principles and physics, including radiation biology and safety.
- Knowledge in radiographic techniques and their indications, particularly as they relate to the CT and MR imaging of the airways, the heart and pulmonary parenchyma.
- An understanding of the radiographic and cross-sectional evaluation of interstitial lung disease, cardiac and coronary disease, oncology and other diseases of the thorax.
- Extensive experience and comfort in the plain film evaluation of both in- and out-patients, particularly patients in the intensive care units (ICUs).
- An understanding of CT angiography, including gated cardiac studies, and its use in cardiac and vascular diseases of the chest and abdomen.
Thoracic imaging fellows are offered an optional four weeks of elective time to pursue academic research in an additional imaging field, such as neuroradiology or breast imaging.
Though most thoracic radiologists are currently working in academic practices, graduates of the program are successfully equipped to join either academic or private practice.
The Thoracic Radiology Fellowship at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center offers an excellent balance of both thoracic (“pulmonary”) and cardiac training, with dedicated faculty in both areas. With eight cardio/thoracic fellowship-trained faculty members, our division is able to offer trainees a high-volume experience with training from a diverse, highly experienced and expert group of faculty.
