NYU Grossman School of Medicine offers a one-year fellowship in neuroradiology that prepares radiologists to provide neuroimaging services, conduct neuroimaging research, and teach neuroimaging techniques. Founded in 1963, our Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)–accredited program is one of the oldest neuroradiology fellowships in the United States.
Members of our faculty serve as reviewers and editorial board members for prominent neuroimaging academic journals, including Radiology, RadioGraphics, Archives of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery, and the American Journal of Neuroradiology. They also serve on the executive committees of regional and national organizations including the American Society of Neuroradiology, American Society of Functional Neuroradiology, Eastern Neuroradiological Society, and New York Roentgen Ray Society.
The Neuroradiology Fellowship is overseen by Mari Hagiwara, MD, program director, and Maria J. Borja Angulo, MD, associate program director. For more information, contact Nati A. Mejias, program coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Neuroradiology Training Experience
Neuroradiology fellows receive in-depth training in adult and pediatric neuroimaging procedures for the brain, spine, head, and neck, and learn the basics of interventional neuroradiology.
Fellows gain experience diagnosing and treating a broad spectrum of neurological pathologies and provide advanced neuroimaging services. You also receive training in advanced functional imaging procedures, including perfusion, diffusion imaging, and MR spectroscopy, as well as how to perform and interpret neuroradiologic procedures, including angiography, lumbar punctures, and myelography.
Your training includes reading head and neck neuroradiology images alongside the head and neck attending, and performing functional MRI and tractography, PET/MRI scanning, fetal MRI, and neuroangiography. Fellows gain experience with a number of interventional neuroradiology procedures, including lumbar puncture, myelography, epidural blood patches, and bone, spine, and head and neck biopsies.
Neuroradiology rotations take place at the following locations:
- NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital, where you read primarily inpatient and emergency department studies and perform inpatient neuroradiology procedures
- NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue , where you read both inpatient and outpatient neuroradiology and head and neck studies and perform inpatient neuroimaging procedures
- NYU Langone Radiology—Ambulatory Care Center East 41st Street, where you read a high volume of outpatient adult and pediatric CT and MRI scans
- NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, where you read inpatient and outpatient studies, primarily from stroke and trauma cases
Elective experiences include neuroradiology research, global radiology, neurosurgery, fetal MRI, pain management procedures, and extra rotations in head and neck and interventional neuroradiology.
Your responsibilities increase progressively throughout the year and are consistent with your level of training. At the end of the fellowship, you are capable of performing independent and accurate clinical assessments in all areas of neuroradiology.
Neuroradiology fellows participate in regular morning conferences, including interactive case-based lectures from attending physicians, fellow-led grand rounds, and didactic and guest lectures. At least one day per week is reserved for head, neck, brain, and spine topics.
Fellows also attend and present at weekly and monthly interdisciplinary tumor boards on topics such as adult and pediatric neuro-oncology and head and neck oncology. At conferences on pediatric neurology and neuroradiology, topics include skull base, spine, and cerebrovascular imaging.
As part of a summer lecture series, fellows take part in daily morning lectures that review fundamental neuroimaging topics and postprocessing and procedural techniques. Other meetings include interesting case and head and neck case conferences and lecture series on topics such as economics in medicine, early career fundamentals, and ongoing neuroradiology research.
Neuroradiology Research Opportunities
Neuroradiology fellows participate in numerous ongoing basic and clinical research projects in collaboration with other radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, otorhinolaryngology specialists, and psychiatrists.
Much of our research focuses on neuroimaging techniques for brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, dementia, hydrocephalus, traumatic brain injury, and Ménière’s disease. We also study neuroradiology applications of radiogenomics and artificial intelligence.
At NYU Langone Radiology—Center for Biomedical Imaging, researchers have access to the most advanced 3-Tesla (3T) and 7T MRI magnets, as well as a PET/MRI scanner and guidance from world-renowned leaders in advanced coil and pulse sequence technology. Our fellows are encouraged to contribute to division research, publish work in neuroimaging and radiology journals, and present findings at national neuroradiology meetings.
How to Apply
We accept applications for the Neuroradiology Fellowship from August through November and interview applicants in December. Please apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS®), the centralized online application service of the Association of American Medical Colleges® (AAMC®). We participate in the National Resident Matching Program® , also known as The Match®.
