Cardiovascular Imaging

The Cardiovascular imaging (CVI) fellowship program is designed to develop broad-based expertise in all forms of non-invasive CV imaging, and image processing. Upon completion of the program, fellows will be able to image all forms of cardiovascular disease with appropriate tools and to answer clinical questions with a greater degree of expertise and freedom than is generally available currently. This training program is associated with the ACGME-accredited University of Pennsylvania Diagnostic Radiology Residency and Interventional Radiology Fellowship programs.


The CV fellow is expected to participate in the clinical research activities of the cardiovascular and section. At any given time, a wide variety of clinical trials are ongoing, and the fellows are expected to understand the study protocols and participate in the studies. The help of the full time CVI section research assistant is available to conduct clinical trials. All CVI fellows are encouraged to submit at least one scientific paper or exhibit to a national meeting or journal.
