Neurointerventional Radiology

Fellows learn to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, including brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, dural arteriovenous fistulas, extra- and intracranial atherosclerotic disease and ischemic stroke. Our service is closely integrated with the departments of neurological surgery and neurology. More than 1,000 diagnostic angiographies and 300 interventional cases, including 150 aneurysm cases, are performed annually, and our stroke caseload increases every year. Supervised by three full-time attendings, fellows learn hands-on through a high-volume caseload in two biplane neuroangiographic suites with full flat panel and 3D capabilities.

The one-year ACGME-accredited program requires a prerequisite diagnostic neuroradiology fellowship for candidates from diagnostic radiology programs. Applicants from neurosurgery and neurology require a prerequisite year of training in catheter angiography and vascular imaging. Weekly didactic, stroke and vascular conferences, and monthly events include an endovascular acute stroke committee and a morbidity and mortality conference.
