Loyola is a tertiary care hospital with 569 licensed beds located in Maywood, Illinois, 13 miles west of downtown Chicago. Also, on site is the Ronald McDonald Children's Hospital of Loyola. Gottleib Memorial Hospital, in adjacent Melrose Park, is a 264 bed community hospital with integrated medical staff and cross coverage of all imaging studies. Loyola is a Level 1 Trauma Center with approximately 30,000 neuroradiology studies per year and extremely busy Neurosurgery, Neurology and Otolaryngology services.
Imaging equipment is state of the art with two 3T and six1.5T MRI scanners. There are 8 CT scanners in the system including GE's newest 256 slice Revolution scanner with four additional 64 slice scanners and three 32 slice scanners. Two new R&F rooms as well as a new Interventional Suite are available for procedures. Post processing is performed in a dedicated 3D lab with thin client access to Invivo and TerraRecon at each reading station.
The Neuroradiology Section includes six full time neuroradiologists with one clinical fellow each year. Fellows work closely with the faculty with core rotations in general neuroradiology and sub-specialty blocks with concentrations in head and neck imaging, pediatric imaging, vascular imaging and advanced imaging techniques including fMRI, DTI, tractography, CT/MR perfusion and spectroscopy. There are opportunities for research collaboration within the section and participation is an expected element of the fellowship.
