The section of Yale Thoracic Radiology specializes in all aspects of Chest Radiology. Our esteemed faculty, have special clinical interests in Lung Cancer, Intensive Care Radiology, Trauma, Immunocompromised Hosts, and Interstitial Lung Disease. The section provides Thoracic Imaging for Yale New Haven Hospital, the YNHH Shoreline Medical Center in Guilford as well as the Long Wharf Medical Center in New Haven.
Daily imaging work rounds are made with clinicians in the intensive care units. We participate in Clinical Conferences with the sections of Critical Care and Pulmonary Medicine, Thoracic Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Thoracic Surgery weekly. There are subspecialty clinics with conferences for general pulmonary medicine, lung cancer, and interstitial lung disease.
In addition to the teaching of Yale residents and medical students, we routinely have visiting medical students, and residents from affiliated hospitals in pulmonary medicine as well as affiliated radiology programs.
The Thoracic fellowship may be 12 months or split into 6 months with a rotation on another service, if there is space available. Training in thoracic MRI, cardiac imaging and interventional procedures are also available.
