Neuroradiology Fellowship

Neuroradiology Fellowship

Nationwide Children’s Hospital offers a one-year Pediatric Radiology Neuroradiology Imaging Fellowship that teaches trainees the responsibilities and management skills required to independently manage a modern pediatric neuroradiology service.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital offers a Pediatric Radiology Neuroradiology Imaging Fellowship that will provide the trainee with a full complement of clinical skills required to interpret pediatric neuro-radiologic plain films, US, CT, MRI and angiography of the pediatric brain, head and neck and spine, including cutting edge post processing techniques through our Pediatric Advanced Imaging Resource (PAIR).

What You Need to Know


Each fellow will learn the responsibilities and management skills to independently manage a modern pediatric neuroradiology service. To attain this goal, they will be expected to independently analyze imaging exams, review cases with the neuroradiology attending, dictate clear concise reports making use of appropriate templates, proof read their reports, and if necessary, edit reports after attending feedback.

When appropriate they will provide preliminary reports on emergency cases and document timely communication to the referring physician.

Additionally, fellows will learn the key diagnostic imaging features and pathophysiology of some of the most common, and many uncommon pediatric neurologic disorders of the brain/head and neck/spine including but not limited to the following:

  • Congenital malformations
  • Metabolic, genetic, toxic, and neurodegenerative disorders
  • Infectious diseases
  • Neoplasms
  • Traumatic disorders including non-accidental injury
  • Endocrine disorders primarily involving the pituitary gland
  • Autoimmune disease including autoimmune encephalitis
  • Vascular disorders and malformations
  • Arterial and venous infarction spectrum
  • Neonatal imaging including preterm and fetal imaging
  • Hydrocephalus, different forms and causes
  • Imaging abnormalities associated with epilepsy
  • Temporal bone imaging
  • Sino-nasal malformations, disease and neoplasms
  • Iatrogenic disease

The fellow will be exposed to a broad range of topics in the subspecialty, not limited to but as outlined above under Curriculum. Their time will be spent primarily in Neuroradiology. Research is required.

Fellows are encouraged to attend several conferences, boards and clubs.
