Goals and Objectives
The fellowship provides trainees with an organized comprehensive and supervised educational experience in order to develop clinical and research skills in neuroradiology.
Training will include both imaging and interventional procedures related to the brain, spine, spinal cord, head and neck, and organs of special sense in adults and children. This neuroradiology training program functions in direct association with the UC Medical Center/University of Cincinnati College of Medicine ACGME-accredited training program in general diagnostic radiology.
Neuroradiology involves the study and evaluation of the brain, spine, head and neck, and special senses in adults and children including:
- CT of the brain, spine and ENT
- MR of the brain, spine and ENT
- Diagnostic angiography, cerebral and spinal
- Interventional Neuroradiology
- Pediatric Neuroradiology
- Plain films of the skull and spine
At the completion of the fellowship, trainees should:
- Understand the nature of the physician-patient relationship and demonstrate a caring and empathic attitude toward all patients.
- Be able to provide expert consultation services to clinicians, students and other radiologists.
- Know the indications, limitations and risks of all neuroradiologic studies.
- Be able to provide accurate interpretation of all neuroradiology imaging studies.
- Be able to perform and interpret all diagnostic neuroangiography and myelography procedures.
- Have a general understanding of basic neurointerventional procedures.
