Neuro Imaging

The Division of Neuroradiology at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center offers state-of-the-art imaging of the central nervous system and the head and neck for both pediatric and adult patients. There is close collaboration with our colleagues with imaging protocols specialized for the neurology, neurosurgery, interventional neurosurgery, head and neck, fetal maternal medicine and spine services covering all aspects of acute care, inpatient management, outpatient practice and research.

We provide coverage 24 hours/day, 7 days/week interpreting radiography, CT,and MRI. Our division is integral to our medical center's designations as a Level I Stroke and Trauma center by providing advanced imaging techniques such as CT perfusion/CT angiography and MR perfusion/MR angiography. Diffusion tensor imaging, functional MRI (fMRI), MR spectroscopy and perfusion, and advanced PET imaging are among the other state-of-the-art imaging techniques that we provide. In conjunction with our advanced imaging and informatics laboratory (IDEAL), neuroradiology offers three-dimensional reconstruction and analysis of arterial spin labeling, cerebral volumetrics, inter-modality fusion and CT angiography.

Our fellowship-trained neuroradiologists are board certified in diagnostic radiology and have also earned Certificates of Added Qualification (CAQ) in neuroradiology. In order to provide the highest level of care for our patients, we are proud to participate in a wide range of multi-disciplinary activities including weekly conferences with pediatric neurology, the cerebrovascular consortium, adult and pediatric epilepsy, neurosurgery tumor board, otolaryngology, head and neck tumor board, ophthalmology, the spine consortium, and neonatology.

Research interests of the faculty include CT perfusion in aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, diabetes and dementia, DTI and normal pressure hydrocephalus, susceptibility weighted imaging in vascular disease and parathyroid imaging. The Neuroradiology faculty are very active and have prominent roles in national professional societies including the American Society of Head and Neck Radiology and the American Society of Neuroradiology.

We are proud to offer one of the nation's leading fellowships in neuroradiology and continuing our long tradition of training future leaders in neuro imaging.
