Breast Imaging Fellowship

The UC San Diego Breast Imaging Fellowship provides training in all aspects of breast imaging and breast interventional procedures. In addition, we offer exposure to clinical research and translational research.  

UC San Diego Breast Imaging Section is located in the state-of-the-art Moores Cancer Center in La Jolla, California, and performs over 20,000 examinations each year. Exams include:

  • Full field digital mammography
  • Digital breast tomosynthesis screening
  • Diagnostic mammography
  • Breast ultrasound
  • Dynamic contras enhanced breast MRI
  • Molecular breast imaging
  • Interventional procedures

Diagnostic radiology residents rotate on the service on a monthly basis. Each day fellows are actively involved in interpreting breast imaging studies and performing interventional procedures. In addition, fellows are responsible for the clinical follow-up necessary for proper correlation of the results of the diagnostic studies and biopsies.

Fellows are supervised by faculty members of the Breast Imaging Section in the Department of Radiology: Drs. Ojeda, Eghtedari, and Gabe. Fellows attend weekly interdisciplinary breast cancer conferences. In addition, the fellows interact on a daily basis with referring physicians and surgeons in regards to patient work-up, management and follow-up. 

We offer valuable exposure and training in all aspects of Breast Imaging, with a balanced program devoted to clinical, teaching, and research activities. Fellows are encouraged to participate in the annual Breast Imaging and Intervention Course at the Hotel Del in Coronado. We are committed to training future leaders in Breast imaging radiology. 

UC San Diego Breast Imaging Fellowship is currently funded and accepting applications. The Breast Imaging section at UC San Diego offers a 12-month fellowship. Fellow candidates must have completed a radiology residency and must obtain a California medical license before starting the program.
