Ultrasound Fellowship

The section of diagnostic sonography at the University of California, San Francisco, has 4 faculty who attend exclusively in the section of Ultrasound and 6 who share responsibilities with either Breast imaging or Body Imaging plus 25 ARDMS registered sonographers. We perform approximately 110 cases per day among 3 sites at UCSF including Moffitt/Long Hospital, the Ambulatory Care Center, and the Women’s Health Center on the Mt Zion campus in San Francisco. The 3 sites are fully staffed each day (one faculty/resident/fellow) and imaging at all sites is linked by PACS.

The department employs state-of-the-art high-resolution ultrasound scanners with color and power Doppler to perform a wide variety of sonograms including pediatric, abdominal, thyroid, testicular, liver, kidney, and pancreas transplants, genitourinary as well as obstetric and gynecologic imaging. Fellows will get experience performing a number of procedures including saline infusion sonograms, US-guided needle biopsies, needle aspirations, highly specialized ultrasound-guided fetal interventions in the Delivery or Operating suites.

The Ultrasound section has a large commitment to the prenatal diagnosis of fetal anomalies and participates fully in the UCSF Fetal Treatment center, a major referral center for in utero therapy.
