Clinical Opportunities

The Cardiovascular Imaging (CVI) Fellowship provides one year of training in noninvasive cardiovascular imaging using CT and MRI. Fellows receive detailed training in the principles and use of state-of-the-art multidetector row CT and cardiovascular MR imaging systems within the context of a busy clinical cardiovascular imaging service. These cases include CT and MR angiography of the aorta, coronary arteries, renal arteries, pulmonary arteries, peripheral arteries, mesenteric arteries, pulmonary and systemic venous structures as well as cardiac CT and MRI in the assessment of congenital heart disease, ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathy, cardiac tumor, and pericardial disease.

Rotating through the Stanford University Hospital and the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, fellows study cardiovascular diseases in adults as well as in children. Fellows will also participate in the Stanford 3D and Quantitative Imaging Laboratory where they will work with dedicated 3D technologists to gain experience in the 3D visualization and quantitative analyses of a variety of cardiovascular imaging studies. The Program is substantially enhanced through a close working relationship with adult and pediatric cardiologists, surgeons, and interventional radiologists. Active participation in research is encouraged, and dedicated academic time is a component of the fellowship. The cardiovascular imaging faculty members engage in rich and varied research programs, which are greatly enhanced through close collaboration with scientists and engineers in the Radiological Sciences Lab.

Research Opportunities

Our Cardiovascular Imaging research team is focused on innovative, multidsciplinary cardiovascular research and education. Clinical research topics include imaging of the aorta, heart valves, coronaries, and blood flow. We have a diverse team with backgrounds in Radiology, Cardiology, Engineering, Physics, and Epidemiology. And on top of that, we do a lot of fun activities with our group!  

We offer possibilities for (clinical) scientists at any stage of their careers. Contact us for the possibilities.
