Neuroradiology Fellowship

The neuroradiology fellowship is an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-approved, one- or two-year clinical training program. There are four first-year and two second-year fellowship positions. In our program, the fellows train in an array of imaging modalities, including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, PET imaging, radiography, as well as the advanced imaging modalities including functional MRI, perfusion imaging, MR spectroscopy, and fetal MR imaging. Fellows also build competence in invasive procedures, including myelography, pain-therapeutic injections, and image-guided biopsies related to spine and head and neck pathology.

Centered in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, the busy neuroradiology section performs between 55,000 to 60,000 neuroimaging studies annually on the state-of-the-art equipment including two 3T MRI, three 1.5T MRI, and eight Multidetector CT scanners including three dual-energy scanners. A 1.5T MRI and two MDCT scanners are also run on the satellite hospital.

Fellows participate in all aspects of daily patient care, including pre-procedure patient evaluation and post-procedure patient care. Teaching conferences, didactic lectures and multi-disciplinary conferences supplement the clinical experience.

Fellows work closely with the seven board-certified neuroradiologists. Senior faculty members are also senior members of the American Society of Neuroradiology, and are board-certified in diagnostic radiology with subspecialty certification in neuroradiology. Section chief, Dr. Miral Jhaveri, is an author and contributor to the well-acclaimed StatDx, Radprimer and Diagnostic Imaging Brain. Each faculty offers different subspecialty interests and expertise.
