Neuroradiology subspecialty training program is accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and is considered as a residency program.

General Objectives

To develop clinical and academic expertise in both diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology.

  • To develop expertise in the performance and interpretation of advanced MRI techniques, including, but not limited to, diffusion and perfusion imaging, functional MRI, and MR Spectroscopy
  • To help to develop new indications for advanced neuroimaging techniques, including, but not limited to, functional MRI and MR Spectroscopy
  • To refine and further develop expertise in the performance and interpretation of computed tomography scans of the brain, head and neck, and spine
  • To refine and further develop expertise in the performance and interpretation of myelograms
  • To further develop and refine skills with respect to the indications, risks and benefits, and performance of diagnostic neuroangiography
  • To develop skills and gain experience in the performance of intracranial, interventional neuroradiologic procedures, including, but not limited to, treatment of aneurysms with GDC coils, angioplasty, thrombolysis, and balloon occlusions
  • To contribute to and develop expertise in neuroradiology research initiatives


  • A two-year subspecialty residency
  • The resident will rotate through MRI, CT, Myelography, and angiography at both the Civic and the General campuses. His/her time will be divided approximately equally through each of these modalities
  • Protected academic time will be provided when necessary to support research initiatives
