The Interventional Radiology fellowship at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center is an ACGME-accredited, one-year clinically oriented program centered at two large tertiary care hospitals in New York City. There are up to five clinical fellows each year. Each fellow spends 75% of their time at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH) and 25% at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC).
At NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, the fellows experience a wide array of procedures including diagnosis of and treatment of occlusive vascular disease, dialysis access interventions, venous access, benign and malignant GU, and biliary interventions, IVC filters, embolization, RF ablation, cryoablation foreign body retrievals, feeding tube placements, abscess drainages, biopsy and TIPS. The division is responsible for rapidly growing services in vascular and cardiovascular MR and CT and experience with these techniques is also included in the training. Each fellow also spends time at Weill Cornell Vascular, an outpatient practice specializing in evaluation and treatment of uterine fibroids and vascular insufficiency. At NYPH, there are 3 full time angiography suites. The division also has 3 ultrasound units with color doppler and has access to a CT scanner for interventional procedures. The division has an 8 bed recovery room and a fully equipped medical examination and consultation room adjacent to the waiting room. NYPH is nearly completely on-line with a new PACS system and uses voice to text transcription.
At Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the emphasis is on interventions in patients with neoplastic diseases. The members of the division work closely with hepatobiliary surgeons in caring for complex benign and malignant diseases. Their caseload reflects this interest with substantial exposure provided to the fellows in complex biliary interventions, arterial embolization, RF tumor ablation and alcohol ablation of hepatic tumors. An extensive GU, abscess, IVC filter and venous access experience is also obtained. In addition, all of the image directed biopsies at MSKCC are performed by this division. The division has 3 angiography suites, CT scanner and ultrasound units for procedures and biopsies. PACS and computerized databases are also used at Memorial.
Research opportunities exist during the one year fellowship. Fellows who have abstracts accepted to the RSNA or SIR will be funded to attend these meetings. In addition, applicants interested in a second research year are encouraged to make this known when they apply. A fully staffed state of the art animal research radiology lab is available to the division for 100 days per year and has a full time veterinarian experienced in radiology animal research.
