Dr. Susan Palasis, as the incoming Director of Pediatric Neuroradiology, will lead a team of 10 fellowship trained pediatric neuroradiologists. Our faculty are dedicated to excellence in clinical neuroradiology and research and provide education for Emory medical students, residents, and fellows. The pediatric neuroradiology fellowship provides extensive experience in all neuroimaging modalities, including CT, MRI, PET, SPECT, and advanced neuroimaging techniques, such as perfusion, DTI, MR spectroscopy, and fMRI. Dedicated staff assist with 3D post-processing of advanced neuroimaging examinations. Our neuroradiologists lead multiple interdisciplinary conferences for the fellows to participate in. The fellowship can be tailored to provide candidates greater exposure in any areas of subspecialized interest they may have.
There are numerous opportunities and support for research projects and academic endeavors made possible by the close working relationship with neuroscientists throughout CHOA, Emory University, and the Georgia Institute of Technology. The Emory Department of Pediatrics is currently ranked number 1 in NIH funding for all pediatric departments. The division is supported by 3 full-time medical physicists with MR expertise and 2 research assistants. Emory University is currently installing a 7T MRI and PET/MRI system, which will open up opportunities for collaborative research.
