Neuroradiology

The Neuroradiology Fellowship at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Irving Medical Center is an ACGME accredited one-year, multimodality program, providing broad-based training in adult neuroradiology as well as subspecialty training in pediatric, head and neck (ENT), and spine neuroradiology.

Residents and fellows receive strong education and training in all aspects of neuroradiology including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), myelography, arteriography, biopsies, and interventional neuroradiology. There are opportunities to learn advanced central nervous system imaging techniques such as quantitative MR spectroscopy, DSC perfusion MRI, functional MRI (fMRI), and diffusion tensor imaging.

The faculty is active in functional MR imaging (diffusion, perfusion, fMRI) and MR spectroscopic imaging and participates in a number of NIH-funded research grants using these advanced imaging techniques. Highly regarded Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery as well as very active programs in radiation oncology (including gamma knife), neuro-ophthalmology, and neuropathology augment the training program with numerous didactic and clinical case conferences. The Neurological Institute of New York, the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital provide a wide variety of cases from the tristate region as well as national and international referrals.

  • One-year fellowship
