Nuclear Cardiology Cardiac CT Angiography Fellowship

The Department of Nuclear Medicine, London Health Sciences Centre, in London, Ontario, CANADA offers a one to two year Clinical Research Fellowship position in Cardiac SPECT/CT.



This fellowship provides an in-depth and cutting edge experience in clinical and clinical research myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) and coronary CT angiography (CCTA) using state-of the art SPECT/CT and CT equipment (1).The Department of Nuclear Medicine is part of the Academic Department of Medical Imaging at Western University, London, Ontario CANADA. The Nuclear Medicine Department has 7 fulltime and 2 part-time faculty members, 5 residents and 7 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 wiith 8-slice CT and one with 16-slice CT), a GE Discovery PET/CT and a 64-slice GE Lightspeed vCT (in process of being upgraded).
