Visiting Scholars to UMass Chan Radiology

2019 - Updates from former visiting scholars


Javzandolgor Nyamsambuu MD from Mongolia - 2019


Dr. Javza says "Generally, in Mongolia, diffuse and focal liver diseases are being detected and diagnosed by ultrasound, contrast-enhanced abdominal CT and liver biopsy. As Mongolia has one of the highest hepatitis C, B and B+D virus infection and liver cancer incidences in the world, we don’t perform liver MRI with contrast agent in daily clinical practice of our hospital. It is very new knowledge that how to perform liver MRI, how to read this exam and to review previous liver MR imaging at UMass for me. What I have learned at UMass will certainly be fundamental knowledge in my interpreting skill of Liver MRI."

During her stay at UMass, she spent 50% of the time observing clinical cases, attending lectures and conferences, and viewing teaching cases. Dr. Javza spent the other 50% of the time developing a radiology teaching file for use in her department in Mongolia.
