UR Medicine Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology consists of eight faculty members, two physician assistants, and up to two fellows annually. The full scope of diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology is practiced and below is a list of diagnostic and interventional procedures that we perform.

Besides the clinical mission, we have educational and research missions. The residents in radiology, other specialties, and the Neuroradiology fellows are trained in a rigorous, well-structured program. Four dedicated conferences/lectures are given to the Neuroradiology fellows every week, and each of the attending radiologists represent a different area of expertise.

Multiple lectures are given on a yearly basis. Several of these lectures are available on the web page under educational presentations.

The academic activity is illustrated by on-going text book project, journal publications and presentations at the American Society of Neuroradiology and Radiological Society of North America. We collaborate with fellow academic disciplines within the University of Rochester such as Neurosurgery, Neurology, Neuropathology, Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Infectious Disease, and many others.

We have an online web publication of interesting cases and 1-2 new cases are published every week. These cases are authored by residents and fellows in conjunction with attendings within the division.

Neuroradiology operates three MR scanners, five CT scanners, and a biplane neuroangiography room. In addition, multiple RF rooms are used for spine diagnostic and interventional cases.

Please review our Neuroradiology patient brochures for more details about the services we provide.
