Pediatric Radiology

Training the next generation of pediatric radiologists.

The pediatric radiology fellowship accepts 2 fellows per year. We provide comprehensive training in pediatric imaging with a focus on advanced imaging modalities and rotations in nuclear medicine, neuroradiology, and interventional radiology. Fellows receive hand-on training in protocoling, monitoring, and interpreting radiographic, fluoroscopic, ultrasound, nuclear imaging, CT and MR examinations. Supervision is supplied by 6 full time and 1 part time board certified pediatric radiologists. Trainees are given increasing levels of responsibility and independence during the 12 month fellowship. Growth in all of the ACGME milestones is stressed, with attention given to learning how to interact and communicate effectively with children, their care givers, and families.

We believe radiology is best learned by doing, and our fellows will see a large volume of local cases from the St. Louis region, referrals from the surrounding region, and even referrals from around the world. Inpatient, outpatient, and emergency examinations are performed and interpreted at St. Louis Children’s Hospital (SLCH), a 408 bed pediatric hospital that is nationally ranked in all pediatric specialties. SLCH has busy neonatal, pediatric, and cardiac intensive care units as well as one of the busiest pediatric emergency departments in the country. As a major transplantation center, SLCH also provides our fellows exposure to interesting and complex diseases. With a robust congenital heart disease service, our fellows will also have the opportunity to gain experience with advanced cardiac imaging, including cardiac CT and MRI. Fellows will also spend time at our outpatient imaging facility at the Children’s Specialty Care Center, which includes our sports medicine clinic and exposure to advanced musculoskeletal imaging.

Our fellows are an integral part of the healthcare team and participate in a variety of departmental and multidisciplinary conferences each week. Research opportunities, and dedicated time to pursue these, is available and the fellowship is flexible to meet the needs of our trainees. Elective time can be geared to more focused sub-specialty training in areas like neuroradiology, musculoskeletal imaging, and cardiothoracic imaging.
