Visiting Fellowship Program

Expertise in MR advanced imaging BEGINS WITH US

We invite you to participate in the Visiting Fellowship Program offered by ProScan Imaging Education Foundation. Our innovative educational program has been improved and expanded.

Recent enhancements include the development of individualized study programs for physicians based on their specific learning objectives, daily one-on-one interactive sessions with faculty, “chalk talk” sessions with a member of our faculty, and readout observations by attending radiologists.

A Participant Profile will outline your individual learning objectives. At the end of the program, you should be able to identify normal anatomy and variants, injuries, and pathology as they relate to MRI, allowing for practice improvement and better patient care.

Most academic activity is conducted in a well-equipped reading room on the ProScan campus. The program’s features include formalized study programs for physicians based on their specific learning objectives, daily one-on-one interactive sessions with Dr. Pomeranz and/or other ProScan faculty, and readout observations with attending radiologists.


Clinical Volume

ProScan Imaging manages one of the largest advanced imaging teleradiology practices in the world, interpreting nearly 1000 MR and advanced imaging examinations per day.

Individualized Education

Each physician may design a training program to meet his or her educational needs. The right program is available for the beginner in MRI – or the 20-year veteran!


Study Modalities

The ProScan Imaging Education Center offers personal study areas, each equipped with a computer loaded with extensive MRI reference and learning materials.
