Neuroradiology Fellowship Program

The MCWAH Neuroradiology Fellowship Program will begin accepting 2017-2018 applications as of September 1, 2015.

Andrew P. Klein, MD
Director, Neuroradiology Fellowship Program

The Medical College of Wisconsin's Neuroradiology Fellowship Program is a one year ACGME accredited training program located at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Froedtert Hospital is a general tertiary and primary care hospital, with a Level 1 Trauma Center.  It serves as a primary source for the local community, as well as a tertiary referral hospital for Southeast Wisconsin.

The Neuroradiology Section provides a friendly, supportive environment in which fellows can develop the clinical skills and confidence needed to function at a high level in a subsequent academic or private practice setting. Excellent departments of Neurological Surgery and Neurology provide a variety of clinical material.

The Department of Radiology was designated a “Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence” by the American College of Radiology.  This was the first such award in the Midwest and one of eight initial awards. The hospital is located on a large grassy campus in a suburb of Milwaukee. Froedtert has been voted one of the best places to work in Wisconsin, year-in and year-out. Our department is a friendly, stable department, with little turnover at both the professional and staff level.

 Faculty

The Neuroradiology Section includes six FTE and three PTE neuroradiology faculty with excellent academic credentials and specialized areas of expertise, including head and neck imaging, adult neuroimaging, neuroanatomy, and physiologic brain imaging.

 Clinical Experience

The Fellowship is designed to provide extensive clinical experience in interpretation of MR spectroscopy, fMRI, diffusion tensor imaging and tractography, perfusion/blood volume imaging, CT/PET imaging and neuro-interventional procedures, in addition to conventional neuroradiology imaging studies.

Fellows recieve ten weeks of training in each of these areas:

  • Brain and Spine MR
  • Brain and Spine CT
  • Vascular Neuroradiology & Myelography/Degenerative Spine Imaging

The schedule is constructed for fellows to spend one week on each rotation in an ongoing cycle throughout the fellowship year:

  • Week 1 - Brain and Spine MR
  • Week 2 - Brain and Spine CT
  • Week 3 - Vascular Neuroradiology & Myelography/Degenerative Spine Imaging
  • Week 4 - Academic Endeavors

The design of the reading room environment and PACS system forces inter-modality imaging correlation, providing even greater exposure to cases.  Each fellow has a four week rotation of Pediatric Neuroradiology at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.  Fellows also complete a six week rotation of Adult Interventional Neuroradiology at Froedtert, to gain experience in catheter-based angiography.

The Froedtert Neurosciences Center provides a major infusion of patients with challenging diagnostic problems. Weekly neuroscience conferences bring together neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropathologists and radiation oncologists to discuss various aspects of neuro diagnosis and therapy.

 State of the Art Equipment & Technology

Imaging facilities include:

  • Six state-of-the-art Helical CT
  • Six MR scanners on site, with access to an experimental 1.5 and 3.0T imager
  • Three up-to-date Digital Angiography Suites, and a Biplane Neuroangiography Suite with 3D Rotational Angiography
  • State-of-the-art GE as well as Siemens CT (Somatom Plus) and MR (1.5T)
 Research Opportunities

Fellows have significant opportunities to develop research project(s) in functional imaging, neuropathology, and/or neuroanatomy under the guidance of faculty with diverse research interests. Each fellow is mentored by one or more of the neuroradiology faculty, which provides a wealth of research and publication experience.  The Neuroradiology Section overall submits between 10 and 20 manuscripts and/or abstracts per year academic year, frequently receiving acceptances and awards.

 Teaching Opportunities

Fellows have responsibility for teaching both radiology and non-radiology residents image protocoling, interpretation, and report generation.  The fellows review special procedures, and CT and MR examinations with residents and medical students prior to staff read-out sessions.  Fellows will also explain imaging procedures to medical students rotating through the service, as well.

Additionally, each fellow are provided opportunities to present case conferences for residents and medical students throughout the fellowship year.
