About the Program
Neuroradiology in the Department of Radiology at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center is a one-year ACGME accredited fellowship in neuroradiology.
Fellows are exposed to cutting edge technology and superb case material. The large patient population allows the fellow to gain experience in the full continuum of neuroradiologic examinations, procedures and interpretations.
Fellows share imaging and procedure responsibilities, usually alternating weeks on CT/MR and angiography. Trainees perform approximately 100 or more angiograms per year and participate in 25-50 interventional procedures per year.
Our goal is to produce neuroradiologists, with a strong clinical background, based upon daily exposure to recognized leaders in the field, advanced technology and a widely diverse patient population.
Our program offers trainees state-of-the-art equipment and facilities and access to:
- Internationally recognized Stroke program - a collaborative effort between Neuroradiology, Emergency Medicine and Neurology.
- Cutting edge technology and state-of-the art equipment.
- Advanced imaging rotation with specific participation and review of CT angiography in the Advanced Imaging Laboratory.
- One of the most internationally acclaimed pediatric hospitals is Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. It is recognized for its Pediatric Neuroradiology program.
- Large and diverse patient population.
- Strong didactic teaching program with multi-disciplinary exposure to Neurology, Neurosurgery, Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology, Pediatric Neuroradiology, Nuclear Radiology and Neuro-oncology.
- Dedicated research time and exposure to fundamentals of experimental design, performance and interpretation of results with access to departmental statistician and access to research space and laboratory facilities including the Center for Imaging Research, the Center for Surgical Innovation and the Neuroscience Institute.
- Multi-completely digital PACS system and voice recognition transcription system.
- Funding support for national meeting attendance.
- Access to the College of Medicine's recently refurbished and expanded Donald C. Harrison Health Sciences Library and online resources.
Nine neuroradiologists and one endovascular neurosurgeon are on staff at the UC Medical Center, including five full-time and four part-time faculty.
All faculty are fellowship trained and seven of the nine faculty members spend 100 percent of their professional time in Neuroradiology. Eight faculty members hold academic positions in the Department of Radiology. Four additional pediatric neuroradiologists are on staff at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and provide instruction in pediatric neuroradiology.
All faculty participate in didactic teaching and direct supervision of trainee performance.
The Neuroradiology Division benefits from strong departments in and good cooperation with Neurosurgery, Neurology, Otolaryngology, and Neuropathology.
Multidisciplinary weekly conferences include: Neurology Grand Rounds, Neurosurgery Grand Rounds, Neurology/Neurosurgery resident conferences, Neuro-oncology tumor board, Head and Neck tumor board, and Neurovascular Conference. Multidisciplinary conferences on seizures and pituitary diseases are held bimonthly.
A separate one-year pediatric neuroradiology fellowship is also available through Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
Affiliated imaging centers such as Good Samaritan Hospital, and the Mayfield Imaging Center, though not served by the fellow, contribute to the wealth of teaching material.
