Interventional Neuroradiology - RADL 552


Surgery clerkship


University of Maryland Medical Center
Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine
Rm N2E23

Description and Goals:

The interventional neuroradiology elective is designed to provide interested individuals with the opportunity to gain additional experience with imaging of the central nervous system as well as interventional neuroradiology procedures. Students will have the opportunity to observe and participate as appropriate in diagnostic and interventional angiography procedures of the head, neck, and spine. Students will be encouraged to work as a part of the neuro interventional team, learning about common cerebrovascular diseases, their diagnosis, and management. Students will also learn standard protocols for performing angiography procedures, including per-procedure evaluation of patients as well as appropriate post-procedure care. Students will also learn about and participate in image-guided procedures of the spine, including fluoroscopically-guided lumbar puncture, spine biopsies, and myelography. At the end of the elective, students should have a general understanding of common cerebrovascular disorders and their management, including cerebral aneurysms, vascular malformations, and acute ischemic stroke. Each student will be asked to give a presentation to the section on one of the disease entities, or neuro interventional techniques, that they encounter during the elective.
