Neuroradiology — Head and Neck Imaging
Jefferson's experienced neuroradiologists and technicians of the Division of Neuroradiology — Head and Neck Radiology perform and interpret a heavy volume of imaging procedures each year, including 28,000 MRI scans, 16,000 CT scans, 300 selective cerebral arteriograms and 100 myelograms, as well as many referred facial, sinus, orbit, temporomandibular joint and neck cases. The Division also engages in research activities, often collaborating with other Jefferson Departments.
The neuroradiologists and technicians perform all the radiological and imaging procedures related to the nervous system, head, neck and spine at Jefferson. To aid in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with neurological disorders, staff neuroradiologists and head and neck radiologists utilize advanced imaging technologies such as high-field MRI, open MRI, PET, multislice CT, biplane angiography, Gamma Knife and a linear accelerator (LINAC).
Neuroradiology Research and Education
The Division has been very productive in research activities. Residents learn to interpret plain films, CT and MRI studies and receive extensive one-on-one teaching by a staff radiologist.
