Neuroradiology

Thanks to a nationally ranked tertiary medical center, world-class neuroscience institute and partnership with St. Louis Children’s Hospital, fellows receive unparalleled training in neuroradiology. The ACGME-accredited program rigorously prepares fellows by providing high-level training in adult and pediatric neuroimaging. The Neuroradiology section reads over 100,000 cases and performs more than 2,700 procedures each year, with 100% of cases reviewed with faculty who are recognized experts in their fields.

Fellows bound for academic practice benefit from an optional second year training program. This allows for individual time to focus on research or advanced clinical practice in pediatric neuroradiology, head and neck imaging, advanced neuroimaging or general neuroradiology. In addition to routine clinical imaging studies, fellows are exposed to a wide range of advanced MRI techniques including functional MRI, tractography, vessel wall imaging, MR perfusion, MR spectroscopy, and PET/MRI. Fellows train in vascular neuroradiology under the guidance of dedicated, radiology-trained neuro-interventionalists. Daily interactive neuroradiology conferences for fellows and a video library of recorded lectures complement the teaching in the reading rooms. MIR maintains a searchable database of proven cases for study and research.

  • Ten fellows are accepted into the program per academic year. A second year of research or advanced clinical practice is optional
  • Research projects are optional
  • Post-training is about 85% private practice, 15% academic

Home call weekdays overnight (one night at a time) and weekend call (daytime review followed by home call at completion of hospital duties), split evenly among fellows throughout the year.

MIR provides a full diagnostic home work station with full computer functionality through a VPN (access to PACS, Epic, etc). We also offer a wide range of helpful resources and competitive benefits for trainees.

Fellows who maintain full Missouri medical licensure have extensive opportunities to moonlight at several BJH locations, either remotely or in person. This allows fellows to supplement their income and at the same time maintain their general diagnostic radiology skills.

Our four-year alternate pathway was created to allow international medical graduates (IMGs) to complete four years of radiology training and become eligible for certification by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). The required four years of training can be accomplished through a combination of annual training in the following programs: neuroradiology, nuclear medicine (two years of training is required), and pediatric radiology
