Breast Imaging Fellowship

The breast imaging section at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University offers a comprehensive fellowship year at a high-volume, dedicated Breast Health Center with nationally recognized breast radiologists. In keeping with recommended curriculum described by the Society of Breast Imaging, fellows receive in-depth training in both imaging interpretation and breast interventional procedures, and are an integral part of the breast section’s academic and multidisciplinary conferences.   Graduates from our fellowship are in practice around the world in both academic and private practice settings.

The section interprets over 40,000 examinations annually, performing screening and diagnostic full-field digital mammograms, digital tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound, ductography, and breast magnetic resonance imaging exams, as well as imaging-guided biopsies and localizations. Our mobile screening mammography program has been in continuous operation since 1986, and was replaced with new equipment in 2006. Our breast imaging and breast surgery clinics are co-located within the Breast Health Center, to provide state of the art care for patients with breast disorders.

The breast radiologists in our practice are active at a national level within the American College of Radiology and the Society of Breast Imaging, and have been recognized with teaching awards within Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology. Research projects and interdepartmental collaborations are ongoing, and available to fellows based on individual interest.
