The Neuroradiology division in the UNC Department of Radiology comprises five diagnostic attending neuroradiologists, three fellows and three associated neurointerventional specialists from the Division of Interventional Neuroradiology. We have five clinical 1.5T and one 3.0T MR units and a second 3.0T unit to be operational October 2010 in the vecinity of the Emergency Department. Our upcoming dedicated outpatient facility (to open January 2011) will house two MR units and one CT scanner.
We also currently have both a dedicated full-body 3.0T in our research facilities. There are seven CT scanners (including a dual source and a 128-slice). A flat plate CT “Xoran” scanner for ENT work is also in operation. We have two state-of-art, biplane angiographic units in a dedicated Neurovascular suite, as well as access to five additional angiographic rooms and one CT scanner in the general Vascular/Interventional section. A dedicated MR spectroscopist also enhances our research and clinical capabilities. Two PET CT scanners complement our equipment and cyclotron will be operating by the end of 2010.
The Neuroradiology division performs close to 15,000 CT studies, 15,000 MRI studies, 500-600 diagnostic angiograms, 150 neurointerventional cases, and over 200 spinal invasive procedures per year.
