The Division of Neuroradiology in the Department of Radiology at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has a long history of leadership and innovation in diagnostic imaging of the neurologic system, using the first MRI in Ohio (one of the first ten in the United States) and the first ultra-high-field (8 Tesla) MRI system in the world. The division currently consists of multiple fellowship-trained and board-certified neuroradiologists with Certificates of Added Qualification (CAQ) in neuroradiology from the American Board of Radiology.
The division offers expertise in all aspects of diagnostic MRI (including perfusion, DTI, functional and spectroscopy), as well as in CT (including perfusion, angiography and spectral imaging). It also performs interventional procedures including the following:
- Image-guided biopsies of the spine, head and neck
- Fluoroscopically guided lumbar punctures
The division has close working collaborations with the highly nationally ranked departments of Otolaryngology, Neurological Surgery, Neurology, and Orthopedic Surgery.
Active research by members of the division is currently performed in artificial intelligence and use of advanced contrast agents. There is also active participation in multipleclinical trials, primarily involving tumors and multiple sclerosis. The division also plays an integral part in the education of: medical students, radiology residents, and neuroradiology fellows (with three fellow positions per year, two in diagnostic neuroradiology, and one in oncologic neuroradiology).
