Magnetic Resonance Imaging Fellowship


The Department of Radiology at Tufts Medical Center offers an in-depth fellowship in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Fellows are trained in reading all types of MRIs, including those focused on abdominal, breast, cardiac, musculoskeletal, and neurological issues.

Clinical Opportunities

The clinical goal of the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Fellowship is for fellows to become experts at reading all types of MRIs and identifying conditions related to the abdomen, breast, heart, muscles, skeleton and brain.

Research Opportunities

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging Fellowship isn’t focused on research. And research projects aren’t required. However, we encourage research if a fellow would like to do so.
There are many fascinating research projects in MRI. For example, fellows might investigate:

  • Cartilage MRI imaging
  • Globe imaging to redefine the model of the blood-aqueous barrier
  • Polycystic kidney disease and MRI imaging
