Private practice radiology group operating in a large medical center hospital is looking for a nuclear medicine physician or radiologist with nuclear medicine subspecialty training. Candidates must be eligible or certified by the American Board of Nuclear Medicine (ABNM) or the American Board of Radiology (ABR) with subspecialty certification in Nuclear Medicine.
There currently are two full-time nuclear physicians, with a third physician part time. We perform essentially the entire range of clinical diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear studies. The Houston Methodist Research Institute offers participation in a few nuclear medicine research studies if interested, but these are not part of the required duties. We are actively involved in teaching radiology residents. We read all of the nuclear medicine diagnostic studies for our medical center hospital and 6 outside community Methodist hospitals. We share call equally among ourselves for weeknights and weekends. As a group, we currently read an average of about 25 PET-CT scans each day, most of which are FDG oncology, but with a significant percentage of FDG brain scans for dementia, Axumin PET, and NetSpot PET. We perform approximately 80 I-131 therapies/year for thyroid cancer and hyperthyroidism. We also do Xofigo therapies and will soon be doing Lutathera therapy.
Salary and benefits are very competitive.
