The Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging at the University of Virginia (UVA) is seeking a full-time, Fellowship-trained Cardiovascular/Thoracic Radiologist to join the Division of Non-invasive Cardiovascular Imaging and Section of Thoracic Imaging in the Division of Body Imaging.

Primary clinical duties for this position will include but are not limited to reading all modalities for thoracic studies, including plain film, CT and MRI, and non-invasive cardiovascular (NICV) studies, inclusive of cardiac and extracranial vascular CT and MR.

We have state of the art cardiovascular (CV) MR systems (three 3T and one 1.5T) and three 3rd generation dual source CT scanners. The Department also operates two research CV MRI systems (3T and 1.5T).

The Thoracic Imaging Section is growing and currently consists of six radiologists within a larger Division of Body Imaging Division and has active research and fellowship programs.
