The Neuroradiology division in the UNC Department of Radiology comprises six diagnostic attending neuroradiologists, three fellows and two associated neurointerventional radiologists. We have five clinical 1.5T and one 3.0T MR units with a second 3.0T unit to be installed in June 2010. Our upcoming dedicated outpatient facility (to open January 2011) will house two MR units and one CT scanner.
We also currently have both a dedicated head-only and full-body 3.0T in our research facilities. There are seven CT scanners, including dual source and 128 slices. We have two state-of-art, biplane angiographic units in a dedicated Neurovascular suite, as well as access to five additional angiographic rooms and one CT scanner in the general Vascular/Interventional section. A dedicated MR spectroscopist also enhances our research and clinical capabilities. Two PET CT scanners complement our equipment.
The Neuroradiology division performs close to 15,000 CT studies, 15,000 MRI studies, 300 diagnostic angiograms, 120 neurointerventional cases, and over 200 spinal invasive procedures per year.
