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.
We are well known for our excellent clinical education in a collegial atmosphere. Using state-of-the-art clinical equipment and one-on-one education, fellows will master subspecialty level neuroradiology interpretation, pathophysiology, and advanced imaging techniques. We also offer an optional second-year neuroradiology fellowship (NF2) for those interested.
Upon completion of the program, each resident will be able to:
- Interpret MRI, CT, vascular imaging, myelograms, and neuroangiography in the most complicated and difficult cases encountered in clinical practice
- Understand the functional neuroanatomy of the brain, spine and head and neck
- Understand the physical principles underlying advanced neuroimaging modalities
- Be able to perform procedures such as fluoroscopy-guided lumbar puncture and myelograms, ultrasound-guided biopsies of the head and neck, and spine interventions
- Have good general knowledge of related neuroimaging techniques, such as single-photo emission computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), carotid and cerebral ultrasonography
- Be able to design and modify CT and MR protocols as new techniques are developed
- 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 and lead multidisciplinary conferences
The fellowship experience encompasses a broad clinical exposure to all aspects of modern diagnostic and therapeutic neuroradiology.
