Hamilton General Hospital
The Hamilton General Hospital, is a busy tertiary centre for neurosurgical, neurological and trauma patients with a catchment area of 2.4 million. The annual volume of neurological examinations includes approximately 10000 CT's and 7000 MRI's. Departmental equipment includes two 64-slice Toshiba scanners, two 1.5 T Siemens MRIs, and a biplane rotational Siemens unit dedicated to neuroangiography.
The diagnostic neuroradiology fellow will be supervised by five dedicated neuroradiologists, one of whom is a senior member of the ASNR with an added certificate qualification in neuroradiology and a second radiologist with additional board qualification in neuroradiology. Two of the remaining staff are fellowship-trained neuroradiologists who offer many years of both diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology experience. The newest addition to our team has specialized training in both diagnostic adult and paediatric neuroradiology.
The diagnostic neuroradiology fellow in the Hamilton General Radiology Department would be responsible to review and protocol requests for both neuro CT and MRI as well as to review and interpret such studies with staff guidance. The fellow would participate in the teaching of our radiology residents, medical elective students and off-service residents as appropriate. The fellow would be scheduled to attend all rounds related to the CNS disciplines, and give at least two presentations at interdisciplinary rounds. Participation in a research project is expected and one academic day per week will be allotted for this pursuit.
Participation in neuroangiography studies is observational, however the fellow is expected to understand the indications, risks and technique for these procedures. If the neuroradiology fellow is interested, participation in spine interventional procedures is encouraged.
