In addition to the Diagnostic Radiology Residency, UWSMPH Radiology offers a Nuclear Medicine Residency Program, directed by Lance T. Hall, M.D. The Nuclear Medicine Residency provides training and experience through in-vitro procedures, therapeutic applications of radioactive materials, and other nuclear imaging. “Nuc Med” residents benefit from state-of-the-art technology including a 64-slice PET/CT scanner and a Radiopharmaceutical manufacturing facility (RPF).
The RPF can manufacture molecular imaging agents to an extremely high level of precision, opening up a whole new world of possibilities for researchers and residents—residents are encouraged to participate in ongoing projects or develop their own. In addition, there is a strong emphasis in nuclear cardiology which is reflected in coursework and seminars.
