Nuclear Cardiology Cardiac CT Angiography Fellowship

The Division of Nuclear Medicine of the Medical Imaging Department at Western University in London, Ontario is offering a 1-2 year fellowship in Coronary CT Angiography commencing in July, 2019.



The fellowship will focus on interpretation of coronary CT angiography at the Victoria Campus of London Health Sciences Centre. Skills will include learning to select and prepare patients for the examination, supervising image acquisition, image interpretation and report creation. The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to the department’s clinical teaching and to the department’s research program in cardiovascular CT. It should be noted that the studies are often uniquely performed as part of a hybrid imaging approach in which myocardial perfusion imaging is undertaken in the same patients for comparative lesion assessment.

The Nuclear Medicine Department has 8 full-time faculty members, 5 residents and 5 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 CT Angiograms 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, two with 16-slice CT), a GE Discovery PET/CT and a 64-slice GE Lightspeed vCT (in the process of being upgraded). In London, Ontario, we have an animal microSPECT/CT, an animal microPET, a GE PETtrace 880 cyclotron Radiochemistry Facility and a research Siemens PET/MRI. Physicians from Cardiology, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine are encouraged to apply.
