The Neuroradiology division in the UNC Department of Radiology is comprised of five diagnostic attending neuroradiologists, two specialists from the Division of Interventional Neuroradiology and four fellows.  We have five clinical 1.5T and two 3.0T MR units in the main hospital and two MR unis and one CT scanner in our outpatient Imaging and Spine Center.   

We also currently have both a MR/PET 3.0T in our research facilities.  In the system, there are 10 CT scanners, including dual source and two with 128 slice capability.  We have 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.  We also interpret studies for several imaging centers in the Triangle region.

The Neuroradiology division performs over 20,000 CT studies, 20,000 MRI studies, 300 diagnostic angiograms, 120 neurointerventional cases, and over 200 spinal invasive procedures per year.

UNC also has dedicated Neurosciences, Women’s, Pediatric and Cancer Hospitals. We have a strong working relationship with the Department of Neurosurgery, Department of Neurology, Department of Head and Neck Surgery, Department of Psychiatry, Department of Anesthesiology, School of Dentistry and School of Computer Sciences.
