The Neuroradiology Division consists of an experienced and world-renowned faculty specializing in interpreting imaging studies of the brain, spine, and head and neck, in performing image-guided procedures and biopsies of the spine and head and neck, and in neurointervention. We offer minimally-invasive treatment of cerebral aneurysms and other cerebral vascular malformations, stenting of carotid arteries, vertebroplasty, and transvenous embolization of CSF fistulae, as well as urgent stroke management services. We have developed a unique expertise in advanced neuroimaging techniques including dual-energy CT, functional MRI, diffusion tensor imaging and tractography, MR spectroscopy, and CT and MR perfusion imaging, including non-contrast methods such as arterial spin label perfusion. We have an active focus on brain “stress testing,” using advanced blood flow imaging in the context of physiological and pharmacological challenge to evaluate cerebrovascular reserve. As part of a Comprehensive Certified Stroke Center, we offer rapid, dedicated stroke MR and CT vascular and perfusion imaging to differentiate between completed stroke and at-risk tissue. We offer additional advanced imaging services specifically tailored to support our colleagues in multiple clinical specialties, to support a busy Emergency Department, and as part of Level 1 Trauma Center care.
Stanford Hospital & Clinics has expanded its hospital facilities to accommodate new medical technology and increased capacity needs. The new facilities feature private patient rooms, an enlarged Level-1 trauma center and Emergency Department, and new surgical, diagnostic and treatment rooms. Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital also expanded in order to meet growing community needs for specialized pediatric and obstetric care. The expansion provides patients and doctors with the most modern clinical advancements and technology to address the specialized needs of patients and their families. Multiple outpatient sites offer routine advanced imaging technologies and provide facilities for outpatient fluoroscopic- and CT-guided procedures. The Palo Alto VA hospital is also an important part of the planned growth at Stanford and supports numerous specialized research programs. Exceptional opportunities exist for research in all aspects of neuroradiology, both within the department and also across departmental boundaries at both the medical school and the university-wide levels. Stanford University has major initiatives and strong focus in the neurosciences, with significant cross-campus activities in this area.
The Division Chief of Neuroradiology will be responsible for clinical, teaching and research activities of the division, which currently includes 18 full-time faculty members with expertise in adult brain, spine, and head and neck imaging, as well as in interventional neuroradiology. The Division also has tremendous research expertise and a strong record of funded research. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated both scholarly and clinical achievement in the subspecialty of neuroradiology, be a senior member of the ASNR, have mentored junior faculty, and have a significant track-record with NIH and industrial funding. Exceptional leadership and administrative skills are also required. The applicant must have an M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree(s) or equivalent, be board-certified in diagnostic radiology, have completed a formal fellowship in neuroradiology or equivalent training, and be CAQ-certified in neuroradiology.
