Clinical Neuroradiology

Neuroradiology is one of eight divisions in the Department of Radiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. The division provides support, individualized patient protocol design and interpretation principally for the Neurosciences and other clinical departments. This primarily includes Neurosurgery, Neurology, Orthopedic/Spine, Otorhinolaryngology and Ophthalmology. The division consists of ten faculty members, four full-time fellows and four or more additional part-time residents and fellows. The division provides an array of imaging studies of the brain, spine, orbit and head and neck. The division maintains on-site presence and neuroimaging capabilities at Jeffersons main hospital (Gibbon) as well as at our specialty hospital, the Jefferson Hospital for Neurosciences located a block away. The division also supervises and interprets neuroimaging studies for two downtown outpatient facilities as well our additional hospital site Methodist located several miles south.

Fellowship Education

The Division of Neuroradiology/Head and Neck Radiology at Thomas Jefferson University has one of the premier neuroradiology fellowships in the region. The division has been responsible for the training of hundreds of fellows who now practice in both academia and the private sector. The fellowship is unique in that it offers personalized one-on-one training, yet it also provides a level of supervised autonomy that prepares the trainee for the real world. The division is staffed by eight neuroradiologists, two head and neck radiologists, four neuroradiology fellows and three combined (hybrid) fellows. The main hospital Jefferson inpatient facility includes a 1.5 and 3 Tesla MRI units, four spiral CT scanners, including two 64 detector and one 256 detector scanners as well as an interventional 64 detector CT scanner, myelography, staff offices, reading rooms, and a conference room. Additional outpatient equipment includes six 1.5 T MRI units, two open MRI units, and two spiral CT scanners as well as a state-of-the-art PET/CT.

Research

The team has a number of clinical and basic research projects underway, including advanced imaging of cerebral ischemia, DTI of spinal cord injury to predict motor recovery, Alzheimer's Disease, brain segmentation, MR parameter estimation, flow analyisis, cerebral neoplasia, gene therapy of human glioma, DWI/PWI, magnetization transfer, Multi-voxel proton MR spectroscopy in temporal lobe epilepsy, functional neuroimaging, expert systems, and outcomes analysis. We are also one of the first sites to reliably measure the fMRI signal from human spinal cord using a commercial 1.5T magnet. The team recently completed a three year Department of Defense sponsored study which examined the value of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) of the human cervical spinal cord can reliably predict neurologic deficit and predict recovery characteristics after spinal cord injury (SCI).
