Position title: NUCLEAR CARDIOLOGY CARDIAC CT ANGIOGRAPHY FELLOWSHIP
Department: Medical Imaging, Division of Nuclear Medicine
Location: Victoria Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre, London, Ontario
Position description: Department of Medical Imaging, Division of Nuclear Medicine, London Health Sciences Centre, London, Ontario, CANADA offers a two year (option for a third year) Clinical Research Fellowship position in Cardiac SPECT/CT. This fellowship provides an in-depth cutting edge experience in clinical research and clinical myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) and coronary CT angiography (CCTA) using state-of the art SPECT/CT and CT equipment. The Nuclear Medicine Department has 5 (to be 6) full-time and 1 part-time faculty members, 5 residents and several clinical fellows including 2 clinical fellows in the CT Angiography/Nuclear Cardiology program. The Nuclear Medicine Department is city-wide and performs more than 40,000 procedures/year, covering all aspects of diagnostic and therapeutic Nuclear Medicine including a large Radioimmunotherapy Program and a large Thyroid Clinical practice. The Nuclear Medicine practice is one of the largest and most comprehensive in North America. Over 3,000 Nuclear Cardiology studies and >600 coronary CTAs are performed annually in Nuclear Medicine. The department has 11 state-of-the-art SPECT cameras including 2 advanced cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT) dedicated cardiac cameras, 5 SPECT/CT systems (one with 1 slice CT, two with 4-slice CT, one with 8-slice CT and one with 16-slice CT) and a GE Discovery PET/CT. A 320-slice Canon Aquillion CT scanner was installed in Radiology in 2020 and is used by Nuclear Medicine to perform cCTA.
