The Neuroradiology Division covers all diagnostic imaging of the central nervous system, the spine, and head and neck for both adults and children. Subspecialty rotations are provided in functional MRI, PET, and 3D processing. Image-guided interventional procedures and endovascular neurointervention are an important part of the training program. The fellow is fully integrated into all aspects of this work, receiving the progressively greater responsibility necessary to become a skilled, independent neuroradiologist.
Neuroradiology fellows do their training at DHMC's main campus in Lebanon, N.H. This state-of-the-art facility opened in 1991 and has been substantially expanded since that time. The campus includes the 400-bed inpatient hospital towers, operating rooms, diagnostic laboratories and critical care areas of Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic offices, the Norris Cotton Cancer Center, Borwell Research building and conference facilities.
The Neuroradiology Division performed more than 29,000 diagnostic examinations in the last year. Our fellows have the opportunity to perform over 100 cerebral angiograms each year.
We support research in medical imaging and image-guided therapies. Our research brings together medical and scientific professionals from:
- Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC)
- The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice (TDI)
- The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth
- Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC)
- Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth
Through this collaboration, we are a leader in many areas of medical imaging research.
As the only Academic Medical Center in New Hampshire, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health System have many active trials that are enrolling patients across the system.
A clinical trial/study is research in which people can participate and is one of the final steps in the process to look for better ways to prevent, diagnose, or treat your condition. The purpose of a clinical trial/study is to research the effectiveness of a treatment, medication, experimental drug, or device. Many of the "standard treatments" that patients receive today were developed based on the results of previous clinical trials.

DHMC has the full complement of state-of-the-art imaging equipment. We interpret studies from six MRI scanners (including two 3T scanners and a wide-bore magnet), four CT scanners (16 and 64 slice), and two biplane angiography units. Postprocessing is done on GE Advantage, Vitrea, Visage, and Prism workstations for advanced 3D modeling, DTI, fMRI, CT perfusion, MR perfusion/diffusion, and spectroscopy analysis.
