The University of Vermont Medical Center (UVMMC) is the only tertiary
referral center and Level 1 Trauma Center for the catchment area of Vermont
and Northern Upstate New York. The Network Department of Radiology is part of
the larger University of Vermont Health Network in Northern Vermont and New
York, comprised of six smaller hospitals in addition to the University of
Vermont Medical Center.
The Breast Care Center, staffed by surgical oncologists, nurse navigators and
a physician assistant, adjoins the Breast Imaging Department. Radiologists in
the Breast Imaging Division participate in multidisciplinary conferences with
their colleagues in surgical, medical and radiation oncology as well as
pathology and plastic surgery.
The department holds ACR accreditation as a Breast Imaging Center of
Excellence. The section is typically staffed with 3 to 4 radiologists each day
and performs 28,000 mammographic exams per year; including 23,000 screening
mammograms, >95% of them with 3D tomosynthesis. There are 7 Hologic
mammographic units; 4 at the 2 screening sites and 3 in our diagnostic center.
All units have Hologic 3D tomosynthesis and C-View. There are 3 GE Logic E-10
ultrasound units staffed by dedicated breast sonographers. Supplementary whole
breast ultrasound screening for dense breast tissue is performed with GE
automated breast ultrasound (ABUS). Clinical breast MRI is performed on a
Philips wide bore 3.0T unit with a state of the art 16-channel breast coil. We
also have available four 1.5T Philips magnets. Approximately 700 breast
biopsies are performed each year: including US guided core biopsies,
stereotactic vacuum-assisted biopsies (on both prone and upright units) and
MRI guided biopsies.
Additional state-of-the-art imaging facilities at UVMMC include two Brilliance
ICT 256-slice CT scanners in close proximity to the Emergency Department,
three 128-slice CT scanners, one 64-slice CT scanner and a spectral CT planned
for 2022. The department has a dedicated 3D lab with the latest processing
software. In addition, we have a state-of-the-art Vereos PET CT.
Ours is an academic practice of 50 full and part-time radiologists who serve
as the clinical faculty for the ACGME Diagnostic Radiology and Interventional
Radiology Residency programs at the University of Vermont. Faculty members are
actively engaged in resident and medical student education, including daily
image interpretation and teaching conferences, and the Division collaborates
with breast colleagues at multiple interdisciplinary conferences.
Opportunities for protected time for scholarly activity are offered. A 3.0T
dedicated research magnet operated by the University of Vermont MRI Center for
Biomedical Imaging is housed in the Radiology Department and staffed by full
time experienced research technologists and MR physicists. A dedicated
research team supports Radiology Health Services Research in collaboration
with investigators at UVM.
