The Neuroradiology division in the UNC Department of Radiology is comprised of 6 diagnostic attending neuroradiologists in collaboration with 3 specialists from the Division of Interventional Neuroradiology, 4 first-year and one second year diagnostic fellows. We have 6 clinical 1.5T and 2 3.0T MRI units in the main hospital and 2 MRI units and one CT scanner in our outpatient Imaging and Spine Center. Additionally, all neuroimaging studies performed at our affiliated hospitals and clinics are interpreted by us
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 2 with 128 slice capability. We have biplane angiographic units in a dedicated Neurovascular suite, as well as access to 5 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 24,000 CT studies, 24,000 MRI studies, 300 diagnostic angiograms, 120 neurointerventional cases, and over 200 spinal invasive procedures per year.
