Program Description

The Division of Diagnostic Imaging will soon be accepting applications for a second-year or later fellowship position in oncological neuroradiology. This educational program is for the neuroradiologist interested in a comprehensive program of imaging for brain, spine, head and neck tumors, with focus on advanced imaging techniques. The fellow rotates on a weekly basis through a wide variety of clinical experiences in the hospital and outpatient settings, attends numerous conferences and participates in research.

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center offers a full-service oncologic neuroradiology experience with 19 neuroradiologists. There is a 1.5 T Siemens’ intraoperative magnet, three 3T GE and one 3T Siemens, twelve 1.5T GE and eight 1.5T (Siemens) magnets with additional small animal magnets available. There are 21 clinical multi-slice CT scanners within the department including 3 dual source Siemens scanners. Additionally, hybrid units include 7 PET-CT and 7 SPECT-CT scanners. The new Center for Advanced Biomedical Imaging Research (CABIR) allows for true bench-to-clinic research with highly trained medical/ research professionals and dedicated research imaging equipment. The proprietary PACS allows for unparalleled access to images and patient data, allowing for easy generation of case collections and reports.

MD Anderson is the top ranked cancer center in the country for several years running. The Section of Neuroradiology is an integral part of the Brain and Spine Center, which includes a full staff of faculty neuro-oncologists and neurosurgeons. The Brain and Spine Center receives worldwide patient referral, generating unparalleled clinical and radiological experience for the trainee. The Head and Neck Surgery Department is also a premiere …
