The Division of Neuroradiology

Our Mission

The Division of Neuroradiology offers state-of-the-art imaging for pediatric and adult patients to diagnose and treat disorders of the central nervous system and of the head and neck. We collaborate with our colleagues across all specialties, including neurology, neurosurgery, interventional neuroradiology, otolaryngology (ENT), maternal fetal medicine, pain management, rheumatology, ophthalmology, and infectious disease covering all aspects of acute care, inpatient management, outpatient practice and research. Neuroradiologists provide coverage 24 hours/day, 7 days/week to ensure our patients receive the highest level of sub-specialty care. We are recognized for our compassionate, team-based, patient-centered approach to imaging, which includes flexible and easy scheduling as well as efficient results reporting.

Our Experts

Our fellowship-trained neuroradiologists are board certified in diagnostic radiology and have also earned Certificates of Added Qualification (CAQ) in neuroradiology.  Our team consists of the nation’s top experts who are invested in ensuring optimal patient experience and results. The division offers a wide range of advanced imaging examinations, including functional MRI, fetal imaging, perfusion imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, spectroscopy, PET/CT and PET/MRI. Neuroradiology's dedicated image-guided interventions service provides expertise in a variety of procedural areas including lumbar punctures, myelograms, epidural steroid injections, selective nerve root blocks, facet blocks, head and neck biopsies, and CSF leak evaluation and treatment. We also perform CT-guided interventions for headache management, including trigeminal nerve, sphenopalatine ganglion, and C2 ganglion blocks. 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. 

Our Research

The WCM Division of Neuroradiology is an international leader in imaging research to promote brain, spine and head and neck health. For example, our neuroradiologists currently direct projects supported by over $20 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health. In these projects, our neuroradiologists leverage cutting-edge imaging techniques to discover new ways to diagnose and treat devastating neurological diseases like Alzheimer's disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's disease. Additional research interests of the faculty include traumatic brain injury, movement disorders, head and neck malignancy, normal pressure hydrocephalus, cerebral spinal fluid leaks, susceptibility weighted imaging in vascular disease and parathyroid imaging. Neuroradiology faculty members 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. 

Neuroradiology Education

We are proud to offer one of the nation's leading fellowships in neuroradiology and continue our long tradition of training future leaders in neuroimaging. Click Here for: Weill Cornell Neuroradiology Fellowship Page
