The University of Kentucky Neuroradiology Fellowship Program is currently accepting applications for a vacant fellowship position beginning July 1, 2020.
The principal goal of the training program is to provide an organized, comprehensive, and supervised educational experience in all aspects of neuroradiology, including:
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Computed tomography (CT)
Interventional procedures, including angiography and myelography
Head and neck radiology, spine, and brain imaging
Advanced central nervous system imaging, including MR spectroscopy, perfusion MRI, diffusion tensor Imaging, MR and CT perfusion, and angiography
Training and supervision is provided by American Board of Radiology certified faculty neuroradiologists with subspecialty certificates of added qualification in Neuroradiology.
Fellows participate in all aspects of the Department’s academic and research activities, including dedicated didactic conferences, Thursday morning conferences for interesting neuroradiology cases, advanced imaging, journal club and the completion of a mentored research and/or quality assurance project. Some of our neuroradiology faculty perform funded research enabling the fellow to become involved in ongoing research projects. In support of these pursuits, fellows are provided with instruction in research design/analytic methods and one-half day of dedicated non-clinical time per week, on average.
The Neuroradiology Service is actively involved in clinical and academic collaborative activities with the Departments of Neurology, Pediatrics, Head and Neck Surgery (Otolaryngology), Neurosurgery, and Neuropathology. In that vein, fellows also participate in a variety of multidisciplinary care conferences, including ENT-Oncology, Neuro-Oncology, Skull Base Pathology and Pediatric Tumor Board conferences.
Imaging technology available to the Neuroradiology Division at the University of Kentucky Medical Center include:
Two state-of-the-art 3Tesla and five 1.5Tesla MR scanners
One 64-detector CT scanner
Two dual-source energy, 192-detector CT scanners
Three 128-detector CT scanners
One 40-detector CT scanner for interventional procedures
One portable CT scanner
Two biplane angiography suites, dedicated for diagnostic and interventional neuroangiography and spinal procedures
We have made a department-wide upgrade to the latest McKesson PACS and Powerscribe 360 Voice Recognition Dictation Software. Software, Aquarius 3D and Syngo Via is available on each PACS workstation.
