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.
