The modern management of breast disease requires an in-depth knowledge of not only surgery, but breast imaging, image direct biopsy techniques, pathology, radiation oncology, and medical oncology. This fellowship is designed to enhance the basic knowledge of the management of breast disease acquired by a general surgical trainee, particularly in the non-surgical disciplines. Residents in this program will gain advanced knowledge and increased level of skill in the management of breast disease in order to assume a leadership role in teaching and research in the field.
Dr. Niketa Kataria
Breast and women’s imagining fellows receive training in mammography, breast ultrasound, breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and all image-guided interventional techniques at the Lynn Sage Comprehensive Breast Center. Ongoing research projects, with opportunities for participation, include full-field digital mammography, breast ultrasound screening, and MRI. Rotations in breast pathology, breast surgery, and radiation oncology will be provided to ensure that the fellows gain experience in these three closely related specialties.
