The Division of Nuclear Medicine and Nuclear Medicine at Stanford HealthCare is rapidly expanding its clinical and research activities. Stanford has 4 PET/CT and 2 PET/MRI systems, with more growth expected. In addition to routine FDG, NaF, NH3 and amyloid PET imaging, we offer DOTA-TATE PET for neuroendocrine tumors, as well as PSMA and bombesin PET for comprehensive prostate cancer imaging.
The clinical fellowship will focus on all aspects of clinical PET/CT and PET/MRI and will include research projects that evaluate emerging Molecular Imaging technologies related to PET. Fellows will spend 6 months on the PET/CT and PET/MRI service, 4 months on Body Imaging services which includes CT and US rotations, and 2 months of elective rotations (which can be spent on research, body MRI, or other clinical services). Vacation will be in line with departmental policies.
Clinical duties include coverage of the PET/CT service, the cross sectional body imaging services and multi-disciplinary tumor boards. Features include intensive training in the interpretation of PET/CT and PET/MRI, the formulation of clinical and research imaging protocols, and the daily management of the scanners. Training from both Radiology and Nuclear Medicine faculty allows for a unique learning experience not available in most programs. The fellowship lasts one year and is renewable at the end of each academic year. Candidates who will have a total of 16 months of training in Nuclear Medicine (includes general Nuclear Medicine and PET) will be eligible to take the American Board of Nuclear Medicine (ABNM) certification exam at the completion of the fellowship.
