Abstract

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES. Breast imaging, a subspecialty of diagnostic radiology, is becoming more important with the increased performance of screening mammography. Fellowships in breast imaging are being offered at many institutions. Information regarding the contents and structure of such fellowships is important for potential trainees and departments considering offering such programs. METHODS. All 79 fellows of the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) were surveyed by mail. Those with breast imaging fellowships were asked questions about their program. All were asked their opinions about the appropriate features of a breast imaging fellowship. RESULTS. Forty-six (58%) surveys were returned. Nineteen respondents described breast imaging fellowships offered at 18 different institutions. CONCLUSIONS. This information may be useful as radiologists consider establishing fellowship standards within this subspecialty.
