Job Summary

The Department of Radiology 3D Imaging Laboratory has an immediate opening. Our primary activity is the delivery of high-quality, advanced post-processed medical images generated from CT and MRI datasets, including but not limited to Cardiac Analysis, Perfusion, Angiography, functional MRI (fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), utilizing sophisticated 3D computer software. The 3D Lab staff is a small dedicated group that have direct physician interaction, reviewing and discussing post-processing work with radiologists and/or referring physicians for patient management, including quantitative and functional analysis as needed for pre-operative planning. 3D Imaging Specialists are well versed in the fundamentals of scanning technology, cross-sectional anatomy, and gross pathology. These skills and knowledge are essential to identify artifacts in the images and respond to clinicians’ detailed requests for views depicting certain anatomy and/or pathology. The 3D Specialists also interact with nursing staff to support pre- procedural preparation of cardiac and CTA patients to maintain workflow and obtain quality scans for optimal post-processing results.
 

Responsibilities*

  • Operate computer software for production of 3D images and reconstructions from CT and MRI datasets for optimal visualization of anatomic structures, functional imaging and delineation of physiologic and pathologic processes.
  • Work in conjunction with radiologists and referring physicians to ensure that the post-processed images are of maximal clinical value. Produce quantitative measurements when indicated.
  • Ensure that processed images are networked to PACS and other viewing or archival system in a timely manner
  • Use radiology information system to update scheduling and billing records, indicating that a 3D procedure was performed, and linked to the correct exam
  • Working directly with Radiology faculty, help develop, implement and/or assist in maintaining advanced CT protocols and techniques, and in the education of CT technologists in scan protocols and 3D renderings
  • Assist as needed with MR acquisition protocols and QA as related to 3D examinations
  • Assist in the instruction of physicians and technologists who are learning 3D imaging applications
  • Verify appropriate protocols prescribed for all examinations requiring advanced post-processing, including CTA studies
  • Assist faculty and house officers with academic work, including research, publications and lectures on new techniques or procedures involving advanced post- processing and protocols
  • Collaborate with 3D software vendors to develop and test new products for clinical market by providing 3D imaging and quantification when needed

Required Qualifications*

  • Bachelor’s degree in a recognized field of science or learning which is directly related to the duties of the position
  • Registration by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) in Radiography and CT or MRI
  • Minimum 5 years of CT and/or MRI experience (both strongly preferred), including 3 years of post-processing
  • Deep understanding of anatomy, physiology, pathologic processes with emphasis on cardiac, neurologic, and or orthopedic physiology
  • Excellent spatial visualization
  • Demonstrated ability to analyze, compare and evaluate various courses of action to make independent decisions on matters of significance
  • Effective verbal and written communication skills
  • Excellent social skills, displaying positivity, respect, compassion and integrity
  • Can work independently without direct supervision Reliability and collaboration are essential

Working Conditions/Physical Demands:

  • Maintain a neat, quiet environment that allows for innovation and concentration on complex tasks
  • Mental/visual ability to operate complex computer equipment, with precision and attention to detail and ability to visually concentrate and focus for varying periods of time on individual patient images
  • Ability to deal with stressful demands due to patient flow, emergencies and stat requests, and multiple interruptions
  • Physical ability to remain in a stationary position (sitting or standing) for an entire workday (up to 80% of the time with frequent breaks)

Desired Qualifications*

  • 1-3 years’ 3D experience with adequate knowledge of 3D rendering and segmentation techniques and quantitative analysis
  • Knowledge of GE and Vital Images workstation experience preferred, along with Medis QMass, Philips EWS and Invivo Dynasuite
  • Computer Skills in MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, & PACS
