Neuroradiology

The neuroradiology subspecialty division of MCRG is comprised entirely of physicians who have earned the American Board of Radiology Certificate of Added Qualification in Neuroradiology, and all are Senior Members in the American Society of Neuroradiology. World-class expertise is provided for brain, spine, ear, eye, nose and throat imaging and diagnosis utilizing multiple high field MRI scanners including 3T technology. Multidetector CT also is employed in imaging, which includes the only 320 slice CT scanner in Central Florida. This advanced technology scanner provides the lowest radiation dose with the highest diagnostic accuracy.

Diagnostic exams using both CT and MRI include imaging studies of the brain, spine, and neck with specialized exams for the orbits, inner ear, pituitary gland, sinuses, and skull base. Non-invasive neurovascular imaging is conducted safely with both CT and MR angiography, both of which provide impeccable resolution. Advanced imaging modalities include functional MRI, MRI spectroscopy, MRI perfusion, CT perfusion, and diffusion tensor imaging with
tractography.

The array of imaging technology and subspecialty training enables the neuroradiology division to provide valuable input during collaborative weekly conferences with neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, head and neck surgeons, radiation oncologists, and neuropathologists at University of Florida Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health. Additionally, the neuroradiology division participates in conferences for pediatric neuro-oncology and multiple sclerosis, providing opportunities to devise appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic plans for the most challenging patients referred to Orlando Health from the local community, across the country, and internationally. The neuroradiology division also engages in research related to brain tumors, concussion and traumatic brain injury.

With the Orlando Regional Medical Center recently achieving comprehensive stroke center status, the neuroradiology division has been an active part of the stroke team. Our imaging algorithm maximizes patient safety with respect to radiation and potential renal injury from contrast while providing the most rapid and most accurate methods for stroke detection and diagnosis. The division works closely with the neurology and neurointerventional services to provide consultation for all stroke patients. As 1.9 million neurons die each minute during a stroke, timely diagnosis and therapy are crucial. The synergy achieved ensures the appropriate therapies are instituted faster on average than the national stroke center standards.
