This program is based at the QEII Health Sciences Centre, Halifax, where adult neuroradiology is taught by four neuroradiologists in conjunction with the Dalhousie postgraduate teaching programs in neurosurgery, orthopaedics, neurology, and neuropathology. All aspects of adult neuroradiology are covered in the program including interventional neuroradiology with GDC treatment of intracranial aneurysms and emergency neuroradiology. Also there is fMRI and MR spectroscopy on the research MR unit.
Pediatric neuroradiology is based at the IWK Health Centre. One neuroradiologist is preceptor who oversees resident teaching in this subspecialty. Otorhinolaryngology and ophthalmology teaching is available at the QEII Health Sciences Centre, where two academic radiologists are consultants in plain film, ultrasound, and CT in these head and neck systems. Related imaging in ultrasound and nuclear medicine is taught at the QEII Health Sciences Centre and IWK by qualified imagers in their respective fields. The study of neuroanatomy, pharmacology, quality assurance, and research methodology is available via special teaching rounds and courses held in conjunction with the neurology, neurosurgery, neuropathology, and general diagnostic radiology teaching programs.
Teaching of physical principles and technical background including Radiobiology, Computerized Tomography, Ultrasound, MRI and Nuclear Medicine including SPECT and PET-CT is taught in 3-hour weekly sessions during the summer months.
