The Department of Radiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine offers an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited fellowship in neuroradiology for up to four candidates who have completed an ACGME-accredited residency in Diagnostic Radiology.
Neuroradiology offers state-of the-art clinical equipment throughout the program. Fellows will use advanced techniques and work in facilities dedicated for use in the program.
Upon completion of the program, each resident will be able to:
- Perform and interpret angiograms, myelograms, CT scans and MRI scans in the most complicated and difficult cases encountered in common clinical practice
- Understand the functional neuroanatomy of the brain and spine
- Have good general knowledge of related neuroimaging techniques, such as single-photo emission computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), carotid and cerebral ultrasonography
- Understand the physical principles underlying advanced neuroimaging modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT) and PET
- Be able to design and modify CT and magnetic resonance (MR) protocols as new techniques are developed
- Have thorough imaging and clinical knowledge of diseases of the head and neck
- Be familiar with scientific data and issues debated in current neuroradiology literature
- Design and complete a research project or scholarly activity
- Develop skills and confidence in teaching other physicians about neuroimaging
The fellowship experience encompasses a broad clinical exposure to all aspects of modern diagnostic and therapeutic Neuroradiology.
