Neuroradiology Fellowship

Carina Yang, M.D.
Fellowship Program Director

The Neuroradiology section offers a one-year fellowship program which includes training in advanced neuroimaging and the full range of imaging procedures of the central nervous system, head and neck. Neuroradiology works very closely with other departments in the hospital including Neurosurgery, Neurology, Neuropathology, Adult and Pediatric Neuro-Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Otolaryngology. The congenial environment facilitates rewarding multidisciplinary experience in clinical care and academic projects. The Neuroradiology fellowship includes 8 months of rotation at the University of Chicago Medical Center and 4 months of rotation at NorthShore University HealthSystem Evanston Hospital which provide a fully complementary learning experience.

Training in all aspects of neuroimaging is offered including CT angiography, MR angiography, spectroscopy, diffusion and perfusion imaging, functional MR imaging, and fetal MRI. Fellows can gain experience in basic neurointerventional techniques including spinal procedures, image-guided biopsy and therapy, and diagnostic catheter angiography. They are also exposed to endovascular therapy for intracranial aneurysms and vascular malformations.  Fellows have the opportunity to participate in additional pain management procedures through extra-departmental collaboration, and are also provided with the opportunity for limited radiology elective experience outside of neuroradiology.  Both contrast code simulation and image-guided spine procedure simulation training are made available.

Weekly didactic and clinical conferences are held throughout the academic year to enrich the learning experience. Research and academic activities are highly encouraged. Fellows interested in pursuing academic projects are supported by faculty mentors and dedicated academic time.

The Neuroradiology section offers a fully ACGME accredited neuroradiology fellowship program. In addition, an Advanced Neuroradiology program is available for candidates who desire additional training at a level beyond the standard one-year program.
