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.
John L. Ulmer, MD, Professor of Radiology; Chief, Neuroradiology
Andrew P. Klein, MD, Assistant Professor of Radiology; Program Director, Neuroradiology Fellowship
W. Douglas Brown, MD, Associate Professor of Radiology
Sonia P. Gill, MD, Assistant Professor of Radiology
Leighton P. Mark, MD, Professor of Radiology
Michelle A. Michel, MD, Professor of Radiology
Stephen A. Quinet, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Radiology
Scott D. Rand, MD, PhD, Professor of Radiology
James M. Strottmann, MD, Associate Professor of Radiology
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 receive 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.

Mohit Agarwal, MD
Advanced Neuroradiology Fellow
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)
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 academic year, frequently receiving acceptances and awards.
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.
Additionally, each fellow is provided opportunities to present case conferences for residents and medical students throughout the fellowship year.
