The patient population within the Emory University Health System is large and diverse including a well-established transplantation service (liver, kidney, pancreas and bone marrow), two dedicated Cancer Centers and 3 emergency rooms. Extensive experience with medical and surgical oncology includes hepatobiliary, pancreatic, gynecological, hematological, skin and urological pathology. The 3 emergency departments are comprised of Grady Memorial Hospital, Emory University Hospital and Emory Midtown, where there is vast exposure to common illnesses in the outpatient setting, in addition to abdominal/pelvic trauma at Grady.
Fellows will receive training in routine barium studies as well as fistulograms, defecography and ERCP interpretation.
Extensive experience is provided in abdominal and pelvic sonography. Gynecological ultrasound comprises the vast majority of pelvic sonography and includes training in hysterosonography. Training in OB/US is available if requested. Experience with all aspects of vascular ultrasound is provided including training in color Doppler sonography of the carotid arteries, transplant sonography, abdominal Doppler, and peripheral vascular sonography. An additional focus is thyroid and postoperative neck US. In addition, there has been increasing use of intra-operative sonography, mostly for hepatic resection. The Division of Abdominal Imaging collaborates with the hepatic surgeons in cases of hepatic resection, radiofrequency ablation and cryosurgery.
