Cross-Sectional Fellowship 2023-24

Manipal Hospitals Radiology Group introduced the Cross-sectional fellowship in 2016, with the aim of providing opportunities to young radiologists, to enhance their cross-sectional reporting skills.

The 12-month comprehensive training approach provides the fellow exposure to a wide range of cross-sectional images every day in a patient-centric environment and an opportunity to practice subspecialty reporting under the expert guidance of senior radiologists.

Along with enhancing reporting skills, the program also contributes to the radiologist’s holistic development through diverse academic activities such as publications in reputed Journals, presentations at national and international conferences and various CMEs.
