Cedars-Sinai offers a two-year Cardiovascular Imaging Fellowship that provides clinical research experience and cardiac imaging training in multiple modalities, including cardiac computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron-emission tomography (PET).
The research program includes a broad variety of projects working with a strong clinical and scientific faculty in cardiac CT, PET, single photon emission computed tomography and MRI, from the Cardiac Imaging Section, the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Program and the Biomedical Imaging Research Institute.
In addition to gaining experience in cardiac imaging research, fellows participate the clinical and educational activities of the Cardiac Imaging Section in the Department of Imaging and the Smidt Heart Institute.
The director of the fellowship program is Louise Thomson, MBChB, attending staff physician in Nuclear Medicine and Cardiac Imaging at the S. Mark Taper Foundation Imaging Center. The fellowship is funded by a cardiac imaging research program under the direction of Daniel S. Berman, MD, director of Cardiac Imaging and Nuclear Cardiology at the Smidt Heart Institute and the Imaging Center.
